Cream Cheese Mincemeat Pie

• bottom pie crust for a 9 or 10 inch pie plate
• 3 cups mincemeat
• 8 ounces of cream cheese (softened)
• 1/2 cup sugar
• 1 egg
• 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Make the pie crust and line the pie plate with the crust (I know this seems obvious, but one time when I happened to listen to Oprah — I have listened to the show about 3 times in my life — there was a chef who was talking about cooking something in one of those plastic cooking bags. “When you take it out of the oven, cut open the bag and throw it away,” Oprah said. “You have to say that because there are people out there who will eat the bag if you don’t tell them to throw it away.”)
Put the mincemeat on top of the pie crust. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 to 25 minutes.
Using an electric mixer, whip the softened cream cheese, sugar, the egg and the lemon juice until smooth. Pour on top of the mincemeat and bake for another 25 to 30 minutes or until set.
