I can see the ingredients and directions just fine. I have been making this recipe for years. They are my very favorite cookies!

My Nana's been making these since I was a little girl and they're great! Love them with a cup of tea or coffee. Nice change from the usual sweet cookie. Don't let the mincemeat scare you!

The best mincemeat cookie there is. This is more or less the original NoneSuch Mincemeat Prize cookies. (only difference is the original called for 3 1/4 cups sifted flour - which would equal out to 3 cups non-sifted as in this recipe). Unfortunately, it is becoming harder and harder to find the NoneSuch condensed 9oz brick of mincemeat. (time for a letter writing campaign I guess) substituting the jar mincemeat just doesn't come out very well.

After making these for the first time, I remember the flavor and my grandmother making these and I remember how much I loved them. It brought back many long ago memories. The recipe is directly off the package of mincemeat, too. Good thing I found the recipe here; the print on the package of mincemeat was so small I couldn't read it.

This recipe is similar to our family recipe. I have a note penciled in on my copy that 2 cups canned mincemeat and 1/c flour is equivalent to the condensed mincemeat.
