Pineapple-Coconut Drop (soft) Cookies

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by Joje in Oklahoma Ci

These cookies were always in great demand at our house whenever I made them. Our 5 children loved the pineapple-coconut combination. The only problem was, I couldn't keep them on hand very long. I found this recipe in an Albuquerque newspaper sometime in the '60's and have made them many times since then.

These are good and a nice change. I added a sprinkling of course sugar before popping them into the oven. They were done at 9 minutes. I got 20 cookies but did what we would consider a normal size cookie. :) I did add a 1/2 tsp of coconut extract in addition to the vanilla. These will be made again. Thanks!
