The hubs, in a similar vein, enjoys mincemeat pie this time of the year. I didn't have enough fridge space for a pie to sit and be eaten over time, so I made several mini pies in a muffin tin so that they could be stored/frozen for future consumption.
I usually use the Nonesuch ( !!?? ) brand condensed pie filling and ready-made crust.
That's the Sandra Lee semi homemade style of cooking that suits me fine :)
