Pina Colada Cookies

Makes about 7 dozen cookies

4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup vegetable shortening
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple, undrained
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla (or for that real tropical island flavor use 1 teaspoons rum extract)
1/2 cup flaked coconut

Preheat oven to 350. Spray cookie sheets with non-stick vegetable spray.

In a medium-size bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder.

In a large bowl, cream together shortening and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, pineapple, and vanilla (or rum extract); beat thoroughly.

Gradually add flour mixture and blend.

Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets. Sprinkle each cookie with a pinch of coconut.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden.

Cool slightly and remove from pan with a spatula.
