Mincemeat Muffins – Winter Comfort
I love Mincemeat Pie, Tarts and Crisp (both Anne’s Favourites pg 243), and Mincemeat Muffins (pg 137). I love the extra fruitiness of the filling Doreen and Kerri helped to develop while we worked together at Armstrong’s Bakery and I usually make a batch at Christmas and freeze what is left for muffins on those stormy winter days! We had a few of those in the last few weeks.
I have included the muffin recipe with the gluten-free flour but you can substitute a mixture of whole wheat and all purpose wheat flour and leave out the xanthan gum to make the regular version of these muffins.

For a pot luck I made mincemeat apple crisp in a gluten-free pie shell and it was delicious! With the rich pecan topping and fruity mincemeat filling you forget it is gluten-free.
