Memories of holiday parties growing up? Mine include jello molded salads, twice-baked potatoes, deviled eggs, eggnog and mince meat pie.
I wanted to make a vegetarian/vegan mince pie. I loved that pie, and I love this one! So rich and classic!
Here is the recipe I use. It’s delicious!!
Mock Mince Pie
(One 9″ pie)
- Vegan pie crust for a double crust pie
- 1-1/2 cup raisins, chopped
- 4 medium apples, chopped
- 1/3 cup apple juice
- 1 orange (finely grate the peel, then juice)
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground cloves
- (optional 1/2 tsp rum extract)
Simmer together the raisins, apples, peel and juice until apples and very soft. Stir in sugar, cinnamon, cloves.
Pour into the unbaked pie shell while hot. Top with crust or lattice. Bake immediately in preheated 425 degree oven for 40 minutes or until crust is golden.
Serve warm or at room temperature. Great topped with vanilla ice cream.
Filling can be kept for several days if you want to make it in advance.
