Honey Pineapple Cookies

These cookies have been a family favorite since I was a kid. They’re not your average cookie, they’re soft, chewy, and not overly sweet. (Which means you can eat a lot at once!) Plus, the bits of pineapple add a nice sweet surprise!

7. Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes. Because these are made with honey, they can brown a little more quickly, so keep an eye on them! For more tips on cooking with honey, go here.

This makes about 3 dozen cookies (more or less depending on your spoonful size!) Enjoy!
