Aunt Marys Pineapple Drop Cookies Recipe @pinch

Janet's Aunt Mary shared a wonderful pineapple drop cookie with her. They are a slightly sweet cake havelike cookie filled with pineapple. We love the crunch and flavor of the walnuts. The cookies alone are good and have a tropical feel. But when you add the frosting, they are so so good. It is creamy with bits of pineapple and a hint of maple flavor. The maple is not overpowering, it just enhances the flavors. A fantastic cookie recipe. This recipe is my beautiful Aunt Mary's. She is no longer with us, but I remember how proud she was of her special pineapple drop cookies. She made them every year at Christmastime and, lucky for me, she gave me the recipe. Aunt Mary claimed these cookies as her gift to everyone and never went without making them. When she was on oxygen and visiting my mom for Christmas, she made them... and she did a great job! My hubby and I don't care for nuts so she would always make me a special batch just for us. Enjoy and Merry Christmas from Aunt Mary.
