                This recipe was given to me over 50 {?} years ago by my mother-in-law.
        { I'm revealing my age } Her name was Delina, and she was a great cook.
                If you entered her kitchen on Fridays', that was her day to bake, just the
          smell of homemade bread, pies,cookies, and sometimes her mothers famous
          doughnuts, or Bismark's made you drool with anticipation, knowing you were
          going to  be offered one of these "delicacies". Here is just one of the many recipes
          of Delinas'  that I have.

                                              PINEAPPLE  DROP COOKIES
                         2/3  cup shortening
                         1 +1/4  cup brown sugar { packed }
                         2 eggs
                         1  teaspoon vanilla
                         3/4  cup crushed pineapple
                              Cream shortening, sugar, eggs and vanilla together.
                              Add pineapple [ drained]
                         2  cups flour
                         1+1/2 teaspoon baking powder
                         1/4 teaspoon baking soda
                          1 teaspoon salt

                          Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet [or onto parchment paper]

                         Bake t 375* for 10 minutes, or till golden tan  in color.

                         This is a quick and easy recipe that you and your family will like.
                         I do hope you will give this different recipe a try.

                        That is all for today friend, this is Jenny
