Good tasting cookies very easy to make. I just added 1/2 tsp baking powder and baking soda and dropped by teaspoons onto my cookie sheets. Didn't spread weren't crumbly and perfectly browned on the top and bottom for the 10 minute cook time. Big hit! Read More

This is a very heavy cookie. I wonder if the ingredients list was lacking a leavening ingredient. Did not brown very well during baking. Pleasant taste. Read More

I really liked these cookies but I had to cook them for almost 15 minutes to get them done in the middle (or maybe I just made too big of ones!). They were very good though I will definitely make them again. Read More

This recipe was a hit with my husband... and he's VERY picky! I did add the Nutmeg and Walnuts (using walnut pieces) then embellished the cookies by cutting Marachino Cherries in half and pressing them into the tops before baking. I do not know why everyone is saying that the dough was "heavy" and the cookies still "doughy." Ten (10) minutes was the perfect time for these delicious cookies and the "heavy" dough made them easier to drop by spoonfuls onto the baking sheets. I'm an avid baker and cook and this recipe will remain in my Holidays recipes and used for a long time to come. Good one Becky! Thanks! Read More

the cookies baked for about twenty minutes and the middle still was gummy. The top and bottoms were burning so i just threw away the whole batch. Read More

I probably didn 't drain the pineapple enough and so got a more cake-like cookie. I didn't feel like adding the raisins and added dried cranberries instead. I substituted about 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour for some of the all-purpose flour. We really liked the cookie probably not as much if it had been a more chewy cookie but as I mentioned that was probably my fault. I'll drain the pineapple more next time. Read More

My dough came out crumbly so I added a touch of milk and a bit more pineapple juice to get it to a doughy consistency. The cookies came out very cake-like and were not sweet enough. Will not make again. Read More

This tasted like a baked unflavored dough ball. I followed the recipe to a T and even tripple cheched everything as I went along. I threw the first batch and the rest of the batter away. Not even worth the time trying to adjust anything about it. Read More
