Mincemeat Bars (Robb's)
Sorry, this recipe doesn't work. I really wanted it to! I'm thinking the flour or oats amount is not high enough. 1 1/4 c flour? 1 1/2 c oats? As it stands, I ended up with an overly molasses laden dough, floating in a layer of fat, with delicious mincemeat filling underneath. Not attractive, and not edible either. 59

For filling, in a saucepan bring water to boiling.
Add mincemeat; reduce heat.
Cover and simmer for 3 minutes, stirring often.
In a large bowl beat shortening with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds.
Gradually add granulated sugar, beating until fluffy.
Beat in molasses.
Add flour; beat until combined.
Use a wooden spoon to stir in oats.
Press one/half of the oatmeal mixture onto the bottom of a greased 9x9x2-inch baking pan.
Spread mincemeat filling onto oatmeal mixture.
Drop remaining mixture by teaspoonsfuls onto filling.
Bake in a 350℉ (180℃) oven F for 35 minutes or until light brown.
Cool in the pan on a wire rack.
If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Cut into diamonds or bars.
