Great Grandma Johnson's Pineapple Drop Cookies

Fran Murray


These cookies are wonderfully moist and delicious! My Grandmother made the best cookies and these are some of my favorites. These need to be eaten within a couple days or they loose their moistness (I don't think they'll last that long in your house anyway!).
