Trying to replace a similar recipe I tried making these cookies. They turned out much more dry than what I expected and the flavor just wasn't there. I think if i would not have drained the pineapple so heavily they wouldn't have been so dry. My advice drain the excess juice but don't sqeeze out the juice from the meat of the pineapple.

Awesome cookies... so soft and chewy. My kids, my husband and I can't stay away from them. I think i'm going to have to make some more today!! Be sure to keep them on the pan for 5 minutes before removing to the cooling rack. They have to "set" before you can remove them --otherwise, they'll fall apart.

Wow! These were good. Except, I did not have shortening, so I used butter. Also, I made a cream cheese icing and threw some pineapple chunks in it. Yum! Since this was something for work, I added a slice of strawberry to the top. Not bad. Guess I'll find out tomorrow! ;-) -Tammy
