This is a soft cookie with bits of pineapple, niblets of pecans and vanilla chips sprinkled throughout. These remind of a cookie my Mom made when I was still at home that had pineapple and nuts in it.
Ingredients: 1 cup (2 sticks)butter, softened, 1 cup granulated sugar, 2 eggs, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, with juice, 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoonn salt, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1 cup chopped pecans, 1 2/3 cups (10 ounce package)vanilla milk chips.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until blended. Add eggs and vanilla, then pineapple and juice. In small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg. Gradually add to butter mixture, mixing well. Stir in pecans and vanilla milk chips. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned around edges. Remove from oven and allow to cool for a minute before transferring to cooling racks. Makes about 5 dozen cookies.
