Pineapple-Coconut Drop (soft) Cookies

"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."

I met my husband (ED) when I was a Flight Attendant with Eastern Air Lines, based in Miami, FL. At that time Ed was an Air Traffic Controller in the MIA Center. Our oldest son was employeed by Boeing in Seattle as a mechanical engineer, but recently he was promoted to a management position with them. Two of our daughters chose to be Air Traffic Controllers, like their father. Our third and youngest daughter works for the Army Corps of Engineers. Our youngest son is self-employed in FTW, TX."

    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!

    Great recipe!I thought it could use a little spice so I sprinkled the cookies with cinnamon sugar before putting them in the oven. Makes 5 dozen if you use a teaspoon measuring spoon. The kids already ate 2 batches.
