This was pretty similar to the mincemeat cookie recipe on my package of mincemeat. I omitted the walnuts and put in Rice Krispies instead, and subbed half the flour for whole wheat flour. The cookies came out with a delicious, strong spicy flavor. I frosted half of them and kept the others bare, and I think they were equally good.

Super-fast and easy, these were delicious. They took a little longer than the 8 to 10 minutes called for. I actually cooked them for about 13 minutes, I didn't add the nuts (my wife isn't partial to them), but that is the only change I made. Will definitely make these again.
