WE CALL these "Santa's cookies" because they're what we put out for Santa instead of the usual decorated Christmas cutouts. These cookies remain a traditional part of my holiday baking. Besides a plate for Santa, they fill gift plates for family and friends. I'm often told they're the first to disappear. -Evelyn Wadey, Blackfalds, Alberta

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 2, 2012

I had to add a 1/4 cup more flour, but that may be due to the moisture in the air. Very taste, a definately for our holiday cookies. Thank you for posting it, my mom has been looking for mincemeat cookie.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 22, 2011

If I make it again, I'll only use about 1/2 cup of choc chips. I like mincemeat, but the chocolate covers up the taste of the mincemeat. I was disappointed in the outcome.
