b. sift flour, baking soda and salt together, and gradually add to the creamed


mixture. Drop by teasoons on an ungreased cookie sheet, flattening each cookie slightly with fingers.



c. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, and remove from oven; after 3 minutes, remove

and gently press some coconut flakes onto each cookie. Then. if you want to, add a piece of dry pineapple, mango or pappiya.



notation/tip: You can forgo the last part (Instruction d) but the cookies are the best, with the coconut on top. The dry fruit makes them even more attractive and good!

Notes

I wanted to make some cookies with pineapple, but I hadn't done it before.

I kept looking and looking for a good, worthy receip. I found one, decided to try it and made a couple of changes. The cookies came out wonderful! I took them to a public talk, that my mother was ushering at, at at least one person asked me for the recipe, after the talk ended.
