These are one of my favorite cookies from my childhood. They are my Grandma Cuckoo’s recipe, but my mom always made them for us growing up. We called my grandma that, by the way, because she has a cuckoo clock. We were little kids, you know the nicknames you give people, right? Anyway, I haven’t had these cookies since I was younger. Then they popped into my head so I called my mom for the recipe and made them. Oh, I was taken back in time when I bit into the first one.Heavenly is all I can say. Give them a try and let me know what you think!
1 c. shortening
1 1/2 c. sugar
9 oz. crushed pineapple (you could add more if you want)
3 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
Cream together the shortening, sugar, and egg. Add crushed pineapple (I didn’t have that so I took my tidbits and put them in a processor and crushed it that way), flour, soda, salt, and nutmeg. Spoon onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes.
