My Nana's been making these since I was a little girl and they're great! Love them with a cup of tea or coffee. Nice change from the usual sweet cookie. Don't let the mincemeat scare you!

The best mincemeat cookie there is. This is more or less the original NoneSuch Mincemeat Prize cookies. (only difference is the original called for 3 1/4 cups sifted flour - which would equal out to 3 cups non-sifted as in this recipe). Unfortunately, it is becoming harder and harder to find the NoneSuch condensed 9oz brick of mincemeat. (time for a letter writing campaign I guess) substituting the jar mincemeat just doesn't come out very well.
