Thank you sooo much! My Mom made these cookies every Christmas and I’ve never been able to find it and have been looking for this recipe for years (there is a newer cookie recipe on the box now).

Thank you so much for this!!! I had lost my mother’s handwritten recipe for these some time ago. I had remembered that the foundation dough was basically a sugar cookie dough so I’ve continued to make them at Christmas…topped with red and green candied cherries or pecan halves. They have been a family favorite for decades. Unfortunately, finding the condensed mincemeat is getting harder to do nowadays.
