1 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup mincemeat

Combine oats, flour, margarine, sugar, lemon peel, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and baking soda in a large bowl and blend well.

Put 1/2 the mixture in a well-greased 8" square baking pan and pat down. Spread mincemeat evenly over dough. Crumble the rest of dough on top of mincemeat. Sprinkle the nuts on top and press dough down carefully.

Disappointing. Too much oatmeal.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
Very good & not too sweet. It needs to bake the full time to be well browned & crunchy. I feel it ishealthier than mincemeat pie with the oatmeal & a lot easier.
