“My great-aunt Jeannie (from Scotland) made this each Christmas to serve with my grandmother's plum pudding and mince pies. She always put in a fancy glass bowl and then used red and green maraschino cherries, cut in half, to made a Christmas tree on top. My sister Carol is now in charge of making this each holiday. Mincemeat tarts would just not be the same without it! (Number of servings is appx)”
