Decisions, Decisions!

Hi,

I'll probably be baking the 3rd week of December from dawn to ??..I usually will be baking about 3 different kinds of cookies: chocolate chip/walnut, oatmeal raisin, an old fashion almond cookie, and then there are the panetones, which I'll make about a dozen of those to give to family and friends, probably pumpkin and maybe apple, and/or lemon pies..I'll be burnt out by the end of the baking session and will do some serious sleeptime and catch some zzzzz's afterwards!

MIL has hinted that she would prefer a mincemeat pie for her birthday (Dec 23) instead of coconut cake, so I will be making said pie.

Never made the filling from scratch, though. Anybody got ideas for me?

Mudbug, in case you want to try making your own mincemeat, the ingredients are 2lb 4oz cooking apples, 1 tsp mixed spice, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 8oz dark muscovado sugar, grated rind and juice of 3 oranges, grated rind and juice of 1 lemon, 12oz mixed dried fruit, 4oz chopped dried apricots, 12oz cranberries, 6oz toasted flaked almonds and 1/2 pint brandy, rum or sherry.

To prepare, peel, core and chop apples and together with the spices, sugar, rinds and juices, put them into a large saucepan. Cook until the apples soften before adding dried fruit, apricots, cranberries, almonds and brandy. Once it starts to boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. Leave to cool before packing in warm sterilized jars.

My baking day is this Sunday. I have a friend coming over to help (she thinks she'll get to sit by the fire and drink wine and supervise but I have other plans for her - she'll be standing in front of the stove stirring the caramel!).
This is what I'm baking
homemade caramels
turtles
buckeyes
peanut brittle
orange - white chocolate chip cookies
ginger cookies
chocolate fudge
oatmeal carmelitas
sugar cookies

I have to bring a tray of goodies into work and I also like to package up the treats to pass out to friends and neighbors.
