Sweet Mince Squares
What about this for an easy quick morsel to have with a warm cuppa.
Preheat the oven to 190°C
8ozs Margarine, melted
12ozs SR Flour
4ozs caster Sugar plus some to dust
1 Jar Sweet Mincemeat
Melt Margarine. Combine dry ingredients and mincemeat. Add margarine and mix well. Press into prepared tray-bake tin and bake for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with caster sugar and cool in tin, then cut into squares.
I have so much mincemeat left over from last year. Sounds like a really nice way to use it. Thank you as always. Don’t know what I’d do without your Food Monday. 🙂 I’ll have to look on Amazon to get an ‘ooler’ as I have nothing to ‘ool’ them with 😉
RG – 😆 I have ‘cooled’ your ‘ooler’ – that is the trouble in trying to do three things at once! 😆
I’ve seen reference to “caster” sugar in UK cookbooks and wondered about it. Is it like the equivalent of our light or dark brown sugar here in the U.S.?
Alice – Castor or caster sugar is sold as “superfine” sugar in the United States.
Oh Grannymar. I have just made these and they are sooooooo good. Worth making mincemeat for. The only change I made was to add cinnamon to the sugar for sprinkling. Thank you 🙂
RG – I am thinking of making a batch this afternoon!
