Soft Mincemeat Cookies
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 10 min./batch
Makesabout 4 dozen
As is , I give this recipe only 2 stars as the batter is too thin even for a spread cookie and using a name brand mincemeat the additional spices the recipe calls for were overpowering. To make a cookie that the family loved the flavor and consistency, I skipped the addition spices as the brand mincemeat I used was quite strongly spiced and then I added more flour to the mix, 1/4 cup at a time and did 1 test cookie before making the entire pan. With the mincemeat I used I needed 1/2 cup flour added to create a cookie that did have some spread but not run. Since mincemeat moisture and spice differ you have to play with this recipe a bit to get it right but then the flavor is amazing. I topped mine with cream cheese frosting and chopped nut bits.
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.
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.
