These cookies were very easy to make. They turned out moist and light. The taste was great.And they were also very much like those my grandmother used to make. Perfect treat for a cool fall or winter day.
My Mother always made mincemeat cookies for Christmas years ago, but when I asked her for the recipe, she hadn't saved it. This recipe is very similar and I really enjoyed making these cookies. It was a simple recipe and the cookies are really wonderful. Thanks for sharing it!
Easy to make. I think the recipe needs 1/2 t salt. Make 1 sheet and taste for yourself. I added more salt to the dough for second batch and they tasted better. I also sprinkled them with cinanamon powdered sugar after baking to dress them up a bit! Overall the family liked them. I would reccomend these as good Christmas cookies.
Great Recipe! Tweeked it a bit. I added 1/2 teaspoon each of cloves cinnamin and allspice. I also added walnuts and peacans. My family says they don't like mincemeat but they ate these because they taste alot like gingerbread cookies. They stay moist and cake like. Reduce heat to about 410 if possilbe.
As you can see in my picture I topped each cookie with a pecan half and added a cup of chopped pecans to the dough (because almost everything is better with pecans). I made this recipe for my 83-year-old uncle who was a country butcher (as well as my grandfather). He gave me the family's commercial recipe for authentic mincemeat last year and I wanted him to sample my efforts some of which was frozen. I had a 1# pack of homemade mincemeat in the freezer so that's what I added instead of the 2 c. All in all I wish I would have added more cinnamon and nutmeg and maybe salt too as another reviewer suggested because they were a little bland--certainly nowhere near the punch you get from a hot pie after Christmas dinner. I love the texture of the cookies and I'm sure they'll ship well to uncle. Note I made a glaze of confec. sugar and Southern Comfort. I added about 1/4 cup of SoCo to the dough as well.
