I Almost Forgot!

Cookie of the week!!!


These are my own creation. They're not bad, but I probably wouldn't make them again. They're a white chocolate chip, oatmeal, pineapple, walnut cookie.

I had some leftover pineapple from my Mom's visit (she's like Brittney--we made sure she had 3 cases of diet soda at 73 degrees, a bowl of 342 cheerios, and canned pineapple) and I needed to do something with it!

I wouldn't make these again, or I would at least tinker with the recipe, because they're a little too moist for their own good. Come lunchtime if you packed two or three of them in your lunch, they will have fused into one giant lumpy super-cookie.

Not that that's a bad thing, but sometimes it's nice to eat your cookies separately.

This weekend the weather is supposed to reach nearly 90 degrees. Ugh. Cookie of the week might be a no-bake kind!

Oooh but pineapple in a cookie? I don't think I've ever had such a treat. And add in white chocolate? Sounds like heaven. Yum.

Sounds yummy to me! Maybe dried pineapple to cut down on the moisture factor?

Three cases of warm, diet soda? Ha-Ha! Just like your Grandma. Cookies sound good except for the pineapple. I like pineapple, but I don't think I'd like it in a cookie. Love, Aunt Susan

A little more flour or time in the oven, that would make those cookies dry out a bit. They look good those, I bet with the pineapple you didn't have to use too much sugar. Love, Mom

They sound delish. Maybe if you made them into bars?

And who knew your mom was such a diva?

Well, they look yummy!

Today it was in the 80s here and I discovered that my car AC is no longer blowing cold air. Interesting! tomorrow it will be plummeting through the 50s as the day goes on.

They look good, although I'm not a big fan of pineapple generally.

Well, after flying cross country to see you, I guess mom deserved a little star treatment.

I like pineapple, but not in a cookie (although the rest of the ingredients sound good!). My husband and I used our leftover Easter ham to make a Hawaiian pizza with ham, pineapple, cheddar and mozzarella cheeses, and pizza sauce - now that was good!

Don't know about the walnuts... other than that I would gobble them up. I love dried pineapple.

A no bake recipe would be good! I have yet to find one that appeals
