Even those who are not a fan of mincemeat adore these fruity (yes, meatless) cookies
and always come back for more!
The jarred meatless mincemeat consists mainly of fruit and spices,
hence this 7-ingredient recipe...
Prep: 10 Mins.
Bake: 10 to 12 Mins.
--Note: I've only slightly revised this recipe from its original None Such cookie recipe
and have been preparing these since grade-school days--
1-1/2 c granulated sugar
1 cup shortening
3 large eggs
3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1-1/3 cups (1/2 of a 27 oz. jar) None Such (Borden) ready to use meatless
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare cookie sheets lined with silpat liners or parchement paper; set aside.
In large stand mixer, beat sugar and shortening until fluffy. Add eggs, beat well. Sift flour, baking soda and salt through a sieve placed over mixing bowl of wet ingredients. Mix together, then add in mincemeat and mix until combined.
Drop cookie dough using a small scoop or tablespoon, 2 inches apart, onto prepared baking sheets.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. (Do not over bake or cookies will become too dry. These cookies are meant to be moist and cake like. ~ Enjoy!
