Margery Edington bakes mincemeat tarts every Christmas, in the same way that she watched her English mother do before Edington came to the United States as a World War II war bride.
Margery Edington bakes 10 to 12 dozen mincemeat tarts every year for family and friends. She starts early in the day to allow time for the labor-intensive process.
The mincemeat tart tins and pastry cutters are the same ones Margery Edington used when she first made the tarts more than 60 years ago. Her daughter Rose follows the hand-written instructions her mother included in a letter 40 years ago.
