Dawn's Story

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!


1 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
1 c
1 c
shortening, butter flavor
no. 2 can chopped pineapple, drained
1 tsp
4 c
1/4 tsp
1 tsp
baking soda
1 c
nuts or coconut--- optional

Directions Step-By-Step

Cream sugars and shortening; add eggs and beat well. Stir pineapple and vanilla into mixture.
Add flour which has been sifted with salt and soda, and nuts or coconut if using, mix well.
Drop from spoon on greased cookie sheet.
Bake in preheated oven at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes.

    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?

    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!
