Mini Mincemeat Pies

Every year, I host a gingerbread house decorating party for the holidays. It's a lot of fun and really gets you in the holiday spirit. This year, I'm determined to not kill myself with the preparation.

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.

 I cut smaller circles for the tops and laid them on.
 Smush the edges to seal them, then I crimped mine with a fork. I'm not Martha.
 Bake in the oven for like 15 minutes??? or until golden brown.

I plan to pop these frozen in the oven covered with foil to keep from browning, and reheat until hot the day of.
