A Festive Christmas Treat

Mincemeat bars offer a perfect combination of flavors: a rich, crumbly topping mixture over a mincemeat-filled middle.

Best of all, there's no having to roll out and cut pastry dough, as you would have to do for mincemeat tarts. You can enjoy the same flavor, without all the work.

Mincemeat bars are easy to make and are something a little different to add to your Christmas line-up of favorite treats to bake for the holidays.
