  • In a medium bowl, cream the margarine with the brown sugar and white sugar. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Sift together the flour, baking soda and cinnamon; add to the creamed mixture and stir until just combined. Finally, mix in the oats, raisins, pineapple and walnuts.

  • Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet. Cookies should be about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheet before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

I have been hunting for this recipe for years. When I was a little boy, over fifty years ago, my mother gave it to me and told me to occupy myself in the kitchen. I could remember all the ingredients, but could not recall the proportions. The pineapple is an essential element and gives the cookies a lush, moist flavor that is incomparable. Read More

Sorry I did not like these at all. Something went terribly wrong! Way too moist sweet and too much oats (where's the flour?)! Got completely soggy the next morning! I think the pineapple ruined it and I didn't even use the full amount (had leftovers from a previous recipe)! Read More

Cookies came out pretty good but instead of using can crushed pineapple I used dried pineapple. By doing that it I didn't have moist cookies. I did not put any nuts in the cookies just raisins and dried pineapple. Read More

My first batch came out terribly wrong also - was way too dry. The cookie dough barely stayed together. It may have been because I did not add walnuts & pineapple? On the 2nd batch I added 2 eggs 3 tbsp butter & 2 tbsp more Oats. 2nd & 3rd batch came out good. Read More

Nice change from the ordinary oatmeal raisin cookie. The pineapple makes the cookie really moist. I added white chocolate chips which made them really delicious. Read More

This recipe is the best oatmeal raisin cookie I've found so far. I've tried dozens and this one always tastes great. I don't put the pineapple in - but they are still by far the best. Read More
