Vintage Pineapple Cookies Recipe

It's time to celebrate mothers on Sunday. Do you have a favorite recipe from your mom or grandmother? Or maybe you have a special recipe your mom or mother-in-love would enjoy. You're invited to link up your vintage recipes below.

My own mom absolutely loves pineapple and pretty much any dessert or sweet with pineapples, so I'm thinking of her as I share this recipe for pineapple cookies.  Wishing all mothers a very Happy Mother's Day this weekend.
