I have a similar recipe....with less eggs, and using brown sugar and with the addition of some spices. Mine calls for 2 cups mincemeat. I think that amount would be appropriate for this recipe as well. My recipe makes a cookie crisp on the outside and cake like on the inside. They soften when stored together in a sealed cookie tin. I image these would be similar.
