Ruth Baker of Marshall, Ill., has been sending me recipes for some months now. I have a lot of rhubarb recipes from her but this last time, she sent several pineapple recipes, among others.

These pineapple cookies sounded so good I tried them. They are to die for; they are so good. I also thought these would be good for Thanksgiving.

Ruth is a very interesting woman with a lot of different recipes. I’ll share others every once in a while. Thanks Ruth.
