I saw this recipe on the web and thought it looked so good I had to try it immediately - so I did! The results were wonderful. Even my fiance (who swears he doesn't like pineapple) thought they were great. I found a couple of similar recipes on zaar, but not one exactly like this.

excellent recipe. I had some pineapple to use up and what a treat these turned out to be. Even my picky husband liked these.

When I was small, many many years ago, my Grandma A used to make me pineapple cookies. I loved them. These are really close if I leave out the walnuts. Thank you so much for bringing back some very warm memories.

I really like these cookies. They're soft, moist and mildly flavored. They also freeze well. I had to use butter in place of the shortening, but they still turned out fantastic. This ones a keeper.
