When it comes to Christmas, I'm unstoppable in the kitchen. It seems like I'm constantly baking food for December and preparing food for the festive season. But, you know what?

Last Christmas a friend of mine gave me a traditional minced meat and I really wanted to try a recipe to use it. I found this fantastic mince cookie recipe on cook.me that I just had to try!
As you probably know, minced meat doesn't actually contain meat. However, some traditional versions contain suet, which is an animal fat and is therefore not suitable for vegetarians. I loved making Cook.mes recipe for minced meat cookies. They have a simple step-by-step guide with photos so you know exactly what to do at each stage of the process.
Pre-made minced meat is used in this recipe. So if you don't have a chef friend like me, the recipe developer suggests buying a glass of good quality minced meat in the supermarket. Once you have the minced meat, it couldn't be easier to prepare these cookies. I started beating the shortening, eggs, sugar, and vanilla extract with my electric hand mixer. I added flour, salt, and baking soda before finally stirring in the minced meat and walnuts. After 10 minutes in the oven, I had a large amount of delicious minced meat biscuits that I could share with friends and family.
