Mincemeat Cookies

These cookies, made with our vegan, all-fruit mincemeat, are deliciously sweet with sugar, savory from the raisins, apples, and spices in the all-fruit mincemeat, and golden-brown crisp with every bite. Adapted from a recipe by Minnie S. Corona of Canastota, NY.

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cup flour
  • 1.5 tsp. baking powder
  • 13 oz. Farmer Street Pantry All-Fruit Mincemeat

Instructions
 

  • Cream together shortening and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla.
  • Stir in flour and baking powder until just combined. Cover dough in plastic wrap, press into a disc, and chill at least one hour.
  • Dough will be delicate; flour it well and roll into a rectangle between two sheets of parchment or wax paper to 1/8 inch thickness.
  • Cut dough into 2 to 2.5 inch squares. Place a rounded tsp. of Farmer Street Pantry All-Fruit Mincemeat in the center. Bend two opposite corners over the filling until the tips are crossed; pinch together. Place cookies on two parchment-lined baking sheets.
  • Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 20-25 minutes until edges and bottom are golden brown, rotating sheets halfway through baking. Do not over brown.
  • Cool on racks. Dust with confectioner's sugar.
  • Share and enjoy!
