We adore these cookies! We use our own green tomato mincemeat which I can every year.

Easy to make and not too sweet. They didn't spread spread in the baking sheet to make one large cookie as is usually the case when I try cookie recipes. My only variation was to add a half teaspoon of ground cinnamon and half of a nutmeg (grated) to the dry ingredients.
