   Roll half of pastry to 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly
   floured surface.  Place in a 9-inch pieplate; set aside.
   Combine mincemeat and sugar in a heavy saucepan; bring to a
   boil, stirring frequently.  Spoon mincemeat mixture into
   prepared pastry shell; dot with butter. Roll remaining
   pastry to 1/8-inch thickness; transfer to top of pie.  Trim
   off excess pastry along edges. Fold edges under and flute.
   Cut slits in top crust for steam to escape.  Cover edges of
   pastry with strips of aluminum foil to prevent excessive
   browning.  Bake at 375 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes,
   removing foil last 15 minutes of baking.  Yield:  one
   9-inch pie.
