Anything with mincemeat just has to be good. Recipe attached to a NONE SUCH (TM) mincemeat jar. I'll be trying these for the Christmas tray.

Followed the recipe right on down, & made some GREAT-TASTING, FILLED COOKIES, cookies that didn't last long at all! Will be making these again during the winter holidays, since they'd be a great addition to any cookie platter! Thanks for sharing!
