    foodtvfan's Note:

    A pie in a cookie sheet! Excellent company or pot luck recipe for mincemeat lovers everywhere. My family loves these squares at Thanksgiving and Christmas but they are good any time of the year. Good with a scoop of ice cream and some butterscotch sauce on top if you dare. Or a dollop of whipped cream is nice too.

      This is very similar to my Italian raisin squares, only you use less sugar, which is a little healthier for dad. I did omit the final glaze just sprinkled a little icing powder over the top. Very nice recipe, got five stars from Dad.
