Pineapple Delights Recipe

When I was stationed in Germany, my mother would often send these tropical-tasting cookies to me. The recipe is special because it came from my grandmother. Now my wife and daughter are carrying on the tradition.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 7, 2013

Awesome ingredients, a lot like ambrosia. Seriously flawed ingredient ratios. As written, this yields dry, hard, flavorless bricks. Try reducing the sugar to one cup, brown, white, or half cup of each. Reduce the flour to two cups. These revisions yield a wet batter that produces a moist, soft, seriously awesome tropical cookie.

i love the idea of this recipe. It could use some work tho, kinda bland and batter was runny, you have to play with the recipe to get a desired result.

The batter was very dry, so I added a bit of pineapple juice, the first batch spread too much, so I added about a half cup more flour....no change.

If I make again, I would cut sugar down to 3/4 cup of each. They were pretty sweet.
