This is an old family recipe that my mother and I have used every Christmas as far back as I can remember. This is a photo of the recipe card that my mother has (as you can see, it’s weathered and spotted a bit LOL!):

Little by little, I’m trying to get digital copies of the recipes that my mother has that I love …

Recipe Source: Granny Parrish, by way of my mother


1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup crisco
1 egg
1 cup drained crushed pineapple
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup chopped nuts (pecans usually works best, walnuts are also good)


Mix ingredients and drop onto a cookie sheet with spoons. Bake 15-20 minutes at 325 degrees F, or until golden.
