These were not good at all. I love pineapple cookies. Unfortunately I clicked on this recipe by mistake and ended up making these. Will not use this recipe again. Definately needs more sugar and tastes too much shortening. For those thinking about making these definately cut back the shortening. Better yet use another pineapple cookie recipe. Too bad I had no choice but to let dh take these to work...I'm ashamed. Read More

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! Read More

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!:) Read More

This was a nice cookie to bake. I doubled the recipe and cut the white sugar to 2 cups and added a cup of brown sugar. (Mainly because I enjoy the taste of brown sugar. The cookie didn't have as much pineapple taste as I liked so I frosted it with pineapple flavored frosting. Thanks Mellan for sharing your redipe. Read More
