Brigitte's mincemeat cookies

Yield: 36 cookies

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Shortening
1½ cup Sugar
3 Eggs
3 cups Flour
1 teaspoon Baking powder
½ teaspoon Salt
1⅓ cup Mincemeat filling

"Cream shortening. Add sugar, and blend well. Add eggs, and beat until smooth. Add mixed dry ingredients and then stir in mincemeat. Blend well. Drop by teaspoonful onto a greased cookie sheet, at least 2 inches apart. Bake at 400F for 12 minutes or until lightly browned.

You can use margarine instead of shortening and add chopped nuts if desired, and you can also mix the sugars, using brown and white sugar."
