Mincemeat Cookies

I used None Such mincemeat in the jar for these cookies.  Since there is plenty leftover in the jar after making this recipe, I will be making some mincemeat tarts or maybe even try a new recipe to use up the rest of the mincemeat,  In other words another mincemeat post will be coming soon.
