I would like to ask if you would be able to find an 'Old' McDonalds recipe.
It's the Mincemeat and custard pie. It was a highly favoured festive pie
which was sadly scrapped a few years ago. I was hoping you could recreate
or try to find the recipe. Thanks!
Kind regards, Stefan.
I could not find the actual recipe or a recipe recommended by a former McDonald's employee.
If my experience with fast food chains is accurate, then McDonald's made these pies at a
central commissary or farmed the production out to an outside vendor. If so, then only those
at the commissary or outside vendor would have any idea of the actual recipe.
There is an attempted copycat or "tastes-like" recipe here: Custard Crumble Mince Pies
These pies, called "Festive Pies", were sold at McDonald's in the UK at Christmas time. In the US,
something called "Holiday Pies" were/are sold at Christmas time. These are custard pies, but they
do not have the mincemeat. There is a copycat recipe for those here:
McDonald's Holiday Pie
That's all I can find, Stefan. Sorry, recreating such a recipe is beyond me. I will post this for
