Mincemeat Brownies

Commercially bottled or canned mincemeat is generally available year-round, so preparing this excellent bar cookie is convenient at any time of year and at any time you feel like it.

Mincemeat Brownies:

½ c. butter or margarine, softened
1 c. granulated sugar
2 eggs
½ c. mincemeat
1-½ squares (1-½ oz. or 45 g) unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled  (see Index for How to Melt Chocolate)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
½ c. chopped nuts
¼ c. all-purpose flour
¼ tsp. salt
Sifted icing sugar (“powdered” or “confectioners” sugar), as garnish

Preheat oven to 350 deg. F. Grease 9x9-in. baking pan. Cream butter and sugar 5 min. or until no granular feeling remains when mixture is rubbed between thumb and index finger. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in mincemeat, melted chocolate, vanilla, and nuts. Add flour and salt, mixing well. Spoon into prepared pan. Bake 35-to-40 min.,until toothpick poked into center comes out dry. Cool thoroughly on rack. Dust with sifted icing sugar before slicing.
