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...
Yield: 4+ Doz.
Prep: 10 Mins.
Bake: 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 at room temp (or 2 cubes salted butter, room temp - but omit salt below)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs
3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon table kosher salt
1-1/3 cups (1/2 of a 27 oz. jar) None Such (Borden) ready to use meatless (or 1 9-oz-pkg condensed, broken into small bits)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cookie sheets lined with silpat liners or parchement paper; set aside.

In large stand mixer, beat sugar and shortening (or butter) until fluffy, about 4-5 minutes. Add vanilla extract and eggs; beat well. Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, 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 by heaping tablespoon fulls, 2 inches apart, onto prepared baking sheets.

Bake for 12 minutes, or until lightly browned, rotating baking sheet half way through. Do not over bake or cookies will become too dry.  These cookies are meant to be moist and cake like. ~ Enjoy!
