These cookies surprised me. They were pretty good. A little sweet, but a nice flavor. I do not care for mincemeat pie and made a quick fruitcake recently with mincemeat pie filling and did not like it that way either. I wanted to use what was leftover of it.

I also made 1/2 recipe and with a cookie scoop, it yielded 42 cookies. I baked them on a parchment lined sheet and they took 12 minutes. Mine were a little flat after cooling so an extra minute may have been even better. ty
