Mincemeat Tarts

Yesterday was mincemeat tart making day! I made the mincemeat a while ago and let it age a bit.  You can find the recipe here:  http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/2010/12/mincemeat-recipe-and-new-giveaway.html

I made a pate' brisee dough recipe for the crusts.  You roll out the dough and cut rounds and mold it into muffin tins.

I used my large round cutter to make the bottom crust.

Then I filled them with mincemeat.

I used a smaller round cutter for the tops.

They bake at 350 degrees for about 1/2 hour or until turning golden.

After they cooled,  I sprinkled them with powdered sugar.  When you are ready to eat them you warm them and top them with hard sauce.  Lots of people don't like mincemeat but I make mine with fresh oranges and lemons, diced apple and high quality ingredients so it is very yummy!  I also only use a bit of port in it so it isn't very boozy at all.
