These are the best pineapple cookies—sweet and moist with real tropical flavor. Because they are unique and look so pretty, these cookies are a hit whenever I serve them. People can't seem to eat just one! —Mary DeVoe, Bradenton, Florida

MY REVIEW

"Unfortunately these cookies did not turn out for me. The only change I made was to double the recipe. The cookies were very dense and dry - not moist at all and with little pineapple flavor."

"I haven't made these yet but would like to do so tomorrow. Does anyone know if I need to change this for high altitude cooking?"

"I made these without the frosting, and they were still delicious. They would be great for a spring or tropical-themed occasion."

"Cakey, moist, pineapple-filled cookies. Also good without frosting just dusted with icing sugar. Be sure the bottoms are crispy brown as it gives a nice texture next to the soft cookies."
