This is a soft buttery cookie and very tasty. The second time I baked these I substituted orange extract for the vanilla and used canned mandarin oranges instead of pineapple. Yummy!

Hi, I tried this recipe today. BUT was so disappointed with the result!! Even after baking it for double the time, it still sticks to my mouth. I followed the recipe exactly............but the result was POOR! Roopa

Despite the mixed reviews, these cookies turned out very good! Very moist, and cake-like. I put in 1/2 cup coconut and omitted the nuts. I baked them at 350 for 11 min. I yield 4 1/2 dozen.

I just made these cookies and they turned out very well. I put a little butter cream frosting on them and they were a real hit.. Very fluffy and not too sweet! Great!! I will definately make them again.

The cookies were very good. They were moist and had a very mild flavor. I added a 1/2 cup of coconut, it added a little more texture. Also a great base recipe for your family's favorite add- ins.

These are a bit plain--you can't taste the pineapple too much, so probably a bit better wtih an icing or something to pop up the flavor. They are easy, and they spread, so give yourself a bit of space between cookies. The dough is more like a batter, which makes me wonder if they'd be good muffins, perhaps with some coconut and macadamia nuts tossed in. All in all, I think I'd experiment a bit more to make them a bit better. Thanks for the recipe!
