I had alot of fresh pineapple to use up and I found this recipe. These cookies are great! They are not too sweet and the texture is perfect. A keeper!

best pineapple cookie ever!! Well with some doctoring up. I increased the sugar to two cups and added an entire can of pineapple tidbits (20oz) juice and all. Also I used butter instead of shortning. no need for icing when you do it like this. very cake like which is awesome! can't say enough about them! great!



This is a cute, bite-size cookie that is soft and cake-like. Make sure you make ROUNDED teaspoonsfuls because otherwise the cookies would be too small. Also, I baked two trays at one time, rotating half way through. The total baking time was only 8 1/2 minutes, so watch the cookies closely. All in all, this is a tasty cookie, but the pineapple flavor was quite subtle. Next time, I may add coconut to see if this little gem would taste even better! :)
