I'm trying to do some make-ahead things I can freeze and re-heat the day of to make my life a little less stressful. At least as less stressful you can be when making double batches of royal icing right before your party.
So, I started by making mini- mincemeat pies. Mincemeat is so very "holiday" to me.
I totally cheated and used packaged refrigerated pie crust and jarred Mincemeat filling.
I rolled the crust out and cut it into rounds with a biscuit cutter. I then put them into mini- muffin cups.
Then I filled them with mincemeat filling.
