Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Prepare pie pastry.
Spoon prepared mincemeat into pastry-lined plate. Add additional brandy to your taste. Cover with remaining pastry and flute. Cut slits in pastry so steam can escape. Cover edge with aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning.
Bake pie 40 to 50 minutes or until crust is lightly browned. Remove aluminum foil during last 15 minutes of baking. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack before cutting and serving.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
NOTE: This pie stores well in the freezer.
Makes 8 servings.
