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.
