  • “We adore these cookies! We use our own green tomato mincemeat which I can every year.”

  • “Easy to make and not too sweet.They didn’t spread spread in the baking sheet to make one large cookie as is usually the case when I try cookie recipes.My only variation was to add a half teaspoon of ground cinnamon and half of a nutmeg (grated) to the dry ingredients.”
