Oatmeal Mincemeat Cookies

Marcia McCance


My Mom was a fan of mincemeat... pie or cookies, either one. If you are, too, here's a nice old fashioned oatmeal cookie recipe for you that has mincemeat in it.

If I remember correctly, she used "None Such" brand. Modern mincemeat does not usually have any meat in it, but it is a flavor you either love.... or not.

This one is for all those mincemeat lovers out there!! It really is rather like an oatmeal raisin cookie, only different.

I admit, I'm not a fan of mincemeat, but I love oatmeal cookies so here is the recipe, anyway!!

Peanut butter is so much more than just an ingredient for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It can be used in stir-fry, incorporated into savory sauces, and, my favorite...
