I often joke about She Who Must Be Obeyed. I should point out that she is:
- Smart (way smarter than me)
- Very nice to me
- A great cook
She made me Mincemeat Cookies which proves the last two points.
I am sorry that there are no pictures of the preparation but She Who Must Be Obeyed has advised that taking pictures of her cooking is a non starter. She must be obeyed.
These scream a special occasion. They aren’t crispy. Rather they are soft and cake like. They have the wonderful clove touches of the mincemeat. These are a great cookie for the soft cookie lover.
