    Sydney Mike's Note:

    The winter holidays aren't complete unless there are cookies like these on the table! Festive & tasty! Preparation time includes NEITHER the 2 hours needed to chill the dough before shaping into logs, NOR the time needed to freeze the logs until firm.

      Fantastic cookie to use up that left over mincemeat. I halved the granulated sugar and that suited us just well.

      Great holiday cookie recipe, not too sweet and a wonderful old-fashioned home quality. My Mom said she had fond memories of eating ones prepared by her grandmother, but we did not have that recipe. According to her, this one is even better than the ones her grandmother made.
