A Holiday Treat For Your Favorite Zombie

     T'is the season for gift-giving and spreading holiday cheer!  While shoppers run the gamut of retail establishments, many feel that finding that "perfect gift" is as elusive as the Holy Grail.  And some may say a homemade gift is the best way to show how much you care.  Either way, it can be a daunting task.  You may be wondering what to give the zombie in your life. Here's twist on a classic holiday recipe that is sure to please zombies of all ages and in this case, homemade really is best.  Enjoy!

Zombilicious Mincemeat Pie

2 Granny Smith Apples, peeled, cored and sliced   1 small human brain, sliced
6 oz raisins 
6 oz Dark Brown Sugar 
8 oz Dried Currants
2 oz Dates
3/4 lb Lean Ground  Beef  human 
2 oz Beef  Human Suet (the hardened fat around the kidneys & while you're at it, throw in a coarsely chopped kidney or 2) 
1/2 cup Brandy or Rum  (plus more for the person preparing this dish!) 
Zest and Juice of one Orange & one Lemon
Grated Nutmeg
Ground Allspice 
Pinch of Saffron  skip saffron as it is rather expensive & feel free to skip the other spices since zombies don't really care for spices

*If preferred, dried fruit can be replaced with additional chunks of ground meat, and sections of intestines or chopped internal organs. (hearts, lungs, spleens and gall bladders work well here) 

Combine all ingredients thoroughly, pour into pre-baked pie shell and serve.  (You can also omit pie shell since Zombies do not eat pastry)  

~~~With the hustle & bustle of the Holidays upon us, I will put off a new, month-long, story until the New Year.  I will be sharing some random, holiday-related fun and other tidbits between now and then, but a little more sporadically than normal.  I wish you all Happy Holidays!
