Mincemeat Cookies at

I often joke about She Who Must Be Obeyed. I should point out that she is:

  • Beautiful
  • 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.

The Verdict

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.

  1. I just tried to make these, I substituted shortening for the butter, and ended up cooking them for 10 minutes. I’m very glad I found this recipe.
