MY MOM USE TO MAKE THESE FOR ME WHEN I WAS A CHILD.. THEY ARE SOOOOOOOOO GOOD... I HATE MINCEMEAT, BUT THESE ARE THE BEST COOKIES IN THE WORLD.. THEY ARE A CAKE LIKE, SOFT COOKIE, AND LIKE A APPLE SPICE COOKIE..
(NOW I DONT TELL PEOPLE THEY ARE MINCEMEAT UNTIL AFTER THEY TASTE THEM BECAUSE THEY WON'T TASTE THEM IF YOU TELL THEM... BUT AFTER THEY EAT ONE THEY WANT MORE)

This has been a Christmas staple at our house for over 50 years. We would make many batches at one time and one thing my mom did to keep the cookies fresh was to put a slice of apple in the tin with the cookies. Making some tonight!

I used the condensed mincemeat so I had to reconstitute it first. I used bourbon instead of water to reconstitute. Great recipe!
