"This family recipe has been with us for so long that we're not sure where it came from, but it is loved by all! A wonderful soft, buttery sweet cookie that melts in your mouth with the crunch of crushed pineapple and the softness of a cake. Absolutely WONDERFUL just out of the oven! You will want to make lots!"
