My mother and I made these cookies when I was little, many years ago, using the box of dry mincemeat. I have looked for years for the recipe, they are the best cookies ever!!!

I have been making these cookies for years. I got the recipe off the large Mincemeat Jar. I add crushed walnuts and frost them with carmel icing. Men love these cookies.

Childhood memory of mincemeat (from the dried box) cookies and a glass of milk. First cookie I made when I was 10 or 12. My children and grandchildren all love them. Still have the recipe card that my Mother used-60 years later.

This is a recipe close to what my mother always made at this time of year, so I had a yearning for some. So glad to find this site and the cookies are baking (and sampled). D-yummy! I added coconut & orange qes last half of dough to make a bar. Good

Do you still sell the box of mincemeat, I have not found it in over ten of the local stores, Help, I have made the cookies for many years with the box and I miss them

Amazon sells the box and the bottle.

Nonesuch dried mincemeat in the 9 oz. box is getting harder and harder to find. I found it at Meier this year and bought six boxes. The expiration date is 2013. I'm going to try the cookies.

Good Heavens, Sherri... there are 3 eggs plus the shortening and the mincemeat itself is wet. Did you misread the recipe?

None Such has 2 different types of mince meat one comes in a jar and the other is a small block,you must compensate if using the block,while the jar contains liquid, the block is very dry,more like a bullion cube.

My mother did not like to bake very much as she did not like the feeling of flour. This cookie was a staple in our home. I still use it today and love it just as much.

The Bordens site tells you that the concentrated 9oz box can be reconstituted with 3/4 cup water. You can also use 1/2 the jar or 1 1/3 c. for a more cake-like cookie.

The lemon glaze haley was asking about is also given there. It's just 1 1/2 c. powdered sugar and 1/4 c. lemon juice brushed or drizzled on warm cookies. We never glazed them when I was growing up, but it sounds yummy. Might add jest, too.

I grew up with Mincemeat pies and during the Holiday Season Mincemeat cookies, mom would make 3x the recipe. I had lost the recipe from the None Such jar, it has been about 15 years since this wonderful part of my childhood has been in my home. Made a double batch - family wants a couple of dozen, and mom would freeze the cookies, we had wonderful mincemeat cookies till February every year.

I have made this recipe every year especially around the holidays. My family loves them. I plan to make them part of my cookie trays for friends this year. This is one of the best cookies ever invented.

My grandmother made mincemeat cookies every Christmas (the 50's & 60's). The recipe was lost. Could this be the recipe she used? I have tried more than 30 different recipes and none have been the one she used. For reference, my grandmother would be 121 years old!

I use the Nonesuch mincemeat in a jar only, nothing else tastes the same. I also use the recipe from the jar, just like my Mama did starting 55 years ago. I have found that folks either love them or hate them, no in-between! Thankfully, my kids and their families LOVE them!

Here is the recipe that's on the back of the Nonesuch box now. You can find the box (front and back and to purchase) at walmart.com:

"Prize Cookies (makes About 6-1/2 dozen)

1 cup shortening
1-1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
3 cups unsifted flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (9 oz.) package None Such Condensed Mincemeat, crumbled

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, beat shortening and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs; beat well. Stir together dry ingredients; gradually add to shortening mixture. Mix well. Stir in mincemeat. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto greased baking sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. Frost if desired.

Tip: For a more cake-like cookie, substitute 1-1/3 cups (1/2 of a 27 oz. jar) None Such Ready-To-Use Mincemeat (Classic Original or Brandy and Rum) for condensed mincemeat."

p.s. I've never made these cookies. Thanks for all your great comments and tips. I see that Wegman's carries the boxed None Such Mincemeat, and hope to find it there this week and make a trial of these cookies before Christmas. I have loved reading in the comments about everyone's traditions! Olde Christmas is the best Christmas! :-) Grandma knew best. :-)

I was wondering if Borden’s still mfg. the condensed mincemeat. Now, I’m delighted to find the mincemeat cookie recipe!!! My family LOVES mincemeat, so I know they’re in for a new treat, along with the awaited “pie”!!

Yes the dried is on Amazon. And possibly at Meier

How do you adjust this recipe for altitude? I live at 7,200 feet.

My wife made these since the 60's we didn't change anything. Fort Collins Co 5000 ft. I know they eat well in the Springs as they were one of the items we were required to bring at Christmas
