Personal Notes:
I am not sure if anyone but my Dad, Papa Pete, ever ate this pie, but Grandma would make it for him every Christmas. I tasted it once and it was a little too rich for me as a child, but I have had mincemeat cookies as an adult and I like the taste. I remember when the pie came out of the oven. The scent of it baking will always remain a Christmas memory for me. I remember how excited my Dad was for this special pie, and how his brothers-in-law would always tease Grandma and say that he was her favorite.
