Total time: 
Serves: 24
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 cup butter
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar, plus more for sprinkling
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ recipe homemade vegetarian mincemeat (You can also doctor commercial mincemeat by adding a little candied orange peel, some freshly grated apple and a slug of brandy. You should note, however, that many commercial mincemeats do contain meat.)
  1. In a food processor, combine the cream cheese and butter, cut into chunks, the sugar and the flour. Process by pulsing until the mixture resembles crumbs. Divide into four piles on plastic wrap, use the wrap to help coalesce the crumbs into a ball, flatten each ball into a disk, then wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 350.
  3. Roll each disk into a 11-12" circle, spread mincemeat thinly over the dough, then cut into long triangles and roll each triangle, fat end first. (Alternatively, roll the dough into rectangles, spread mincemeat, roll up into a log, and slice).
  4. Place each cookie on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or a silpat, sprinkle with granulated sugar, and bake 15-25 minutes, or until golden brown.
