I followed this recipe to a T event though I was skeptical about the oven temp, amount of baking powder and the cooking time. I was right, they came out quite raw, completely undone inside with just a thin layer cooked on the outside. I bumped up the temp and stretched the cooking time to 11 minutes, and got a batch that was edible. But, very "bready". I made a second batch, and added a half cup of granulated sugar, cut the baking powder to 1/2 tsp. baked 'em at 350 for 9 minutes and got a batch that some said they liked. they were a bit chewey. No one was fond of these at all by the published recipe. I checked my oven to make sure the temp was spot-on and it was only off one degree F. I use two timers (1 on a necklace so I can move about and not get distracted), and both keep perfect time, so baking time was perfect. I'm always a little shy of cookie recipes that call for baking powder. Some come out all right. But, these tasted more like pan-cakes with pineapple in them than cookies.
