Dawn's notes for this recipe:
Delicious! I added coconut instead of nutmeats for the coconut lovers out there!

So this is a very old recipe, as the recipe does state a "No. 2 can" for the pineapple.

That equates to a 20 ounce can or 1 lb 4 oz. or 2 1/4 cups.

Hope that helps!

What do you mean by 1 no.2 can pineapple? Sounds like a good recipe and want to make it. The cans of pineapple I buy are 20 ounce cans. Do you mean 1 20 oz can of drained pineapple?

A Number 2can is classed as 20oz can.

And I thought I'd made every kind of cookie out there...=;D

Okay ladies,
The old cookbook that I have this recipe from states: No. 2 can. I went to the conversion chart and it tells me that this can size is 1 pound 4 ounces or yes: 20 ounces OR 2 1/4 cups. I will now add that/revise the recipe...hope this helps....enjoy the cookies...they are very good!
