1.) Prepare Bulgur Mixture: Place bulgur wheat in bowl with boiling water. Cover and let stand 2 hours. Drain water; using hands squeeze out excess water from bulgur. Place bulgur in bowl with veal, onion, allspice, cinnamon, salt and pepper; set aside.

2.) Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease 9-inch pie plate.

3.) Prepare Filling: In 12-inch non-stick skillet over medium heat, in 1 Tbsp. hot olive oil, cook garlic and onion 3 minutes. Add veal, allspice, salt and pepper and cook 5 minutes or until no longer pink, stirring to break up meat. Remove skillet from heat; stir in ½ cup mint and ½ cup pine nuts.

Press remaining half of bulgur mixture over filling to cover, pressing outer edge to seal. Brush top with remaining ½ Tbsp. olive oil. Use knife to score top in crosshatch pattern. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until internal temperature of 160° F. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Sprinkle Kibbe with remaining 1 Tbsp. pine nuts.
