I love mincemeat and grew up eating my grandma's pies at every holiday feast, but I realize it's not for everyone. I've found that while people shy away from the strong flavor of mincemeat pie, a sweet and spicy cookie is a much more gentle introduction to mincemeat and it's a good way to win converts!
This recipe was adapted from my daughter's history book (The Story of the World, Volume 2), of all places -- in studying medieval monasteries, we discovered that this could have been a typical "monk's supper," It's very satisfying and the flavors come together almost like a minestrone (minus the pasta). I made some changes and added lots more veggies than the original called for (rendering it less authentic, but much tastier!).
