Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way by Amos Miller

I have always loved mincemeat - pie with vanilla ice cream or cookies and cocoa. This is how we make them, except here I will substitute Borden's Nonesuch Mincemeat, or Robertson's (preferred) in a jar instead of homemade mincemeat. You can substitute your favorite shortening (vegetable works great) while I will use rendered leaf…

Scottish Shortbread

Scottish Shortbread by Marlin Rinehart

This is the most famous cookie of Scotland. It’s a must to use pure butter. Traditionally, shortbread contains no other flavor. I’ve been making this recipe since 1970 when I got the recipe in Edinburgh, Scotland. The addition of a small amount of rice flour gives a firmness and crunchiness to the cookie. Most American recipes for…

Holiday Cranberry Cheese Pie

Holiday Cranberry Cheese Pie by Denise Sherin

This has become a family favorite for holidays. I found it in a Taste of Home cookbook. I have changed the recipe to be more diabetic friendly. The original recipe calls for sugar in both layers and I use Splenda in place of sugar and for the jello I use sugar free gelatin. But use sugar if you like.

Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookie

Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookie by Nancy Miyasaki

I have a number of great chocolate chip cookie recipes. This is probably my kids' favorite. I'm not sure it's truly the original, but if it's not I can't imagine the original is much better! I love the way I can sneak the oatmeal in by grinding it to a powder and my kids don't even notice it! It may not make them health food, but…
