Would not make this again.
Would not make again. Texture was more like a scone, not a cookie. No pineapple flavor at all. 2 stars

Would make this again.
Would not make this again. I agree with the cookie baker in Michigan the cookies turn soft and soggy after i stored it in a container for one day. Plus the taste of the pineapple is too insignificant. All i taste is the vanilla essence. 1 star
