1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup drained, crushed pineapple
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Using an electric mixer, cream shortening and sugar. Beat in egg, vanilla, and pineapple. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt together, and gradually add to creamed mixture. Drop by teaspoons on an ungreased cookie sheet, flattening each slightly with fingers. Bake 12 to 15 minutes. Makes about 3 dozen.

Tips: Give these cookies a splash of summertime with colored sugar and icing dots, or add 1 cup fresh coconut for a tropical cookie.
