I really enjoyed these cookies. I added some spices to the dry ingredients to really brighte them up and scream Christmas. I will make them every year.
These cookies have been a favorite of my family for 30 plus years. I had to buy the box of Borden original condensed mincemeat to find the recipe (which is titled "Prize Cookies") since I had misplaced my handwritten copy. They're great cookies for the holidays, but I love them year round. Thanks for saving it here on Zaar.
This simple to make cookie tastes like the holidays to our family. They ask for them every Christmas.
