My great-aunt Libby had a few foods that she was known for and did exceptionally well. This is one of those foods…Pineapple Fruit and Nut cookies. My mom made them every year after she was given the recipe by Aunt Libby. They were some of the many cookies and other sweet treats that my mom made every Christmas season mainly to give the majority away, although she always made sure my sweet tooth dad and her children had plenty. 🙂 My sister says that these were her favorite.
Unlike many of the other cookies, these drop cookies are easy to make and take very little time to make and bake. Using a cookie (ice cream) scoop is one of the biggest time savers; it also means the cookies are much more uniform in size helping them to be uniformly baked and nicer looking than the old method using teaspoons.
