Front of the Pineapple Nut Cookies recipe with a notation that the recipe is from Aunt Minnie (and then a question mark of if it came from her).

At this time I am not sure who Aunt Minnie is as there are two Minnies in this family.

I just saw your posting on FB about the ability to search the files on this web page. There is a recipe of my maternal grandmother's that I have been trying to find for years. On a whim I thought I would search here. My heart just skipped a beat and stopped for a moment! This pineapple nut cookie recipe is the one I have been looking for. Wonderful! But....the card denotes it may have been from Aunt Minnie, and further in the notes it mentions that there were two Aunt Minnies in this family. We had two Aunt Minnies in our family. One on my mother's side who would have been Minnie Schutz Riley and one on my father's side who would have been Minnie Knitter Hurrell. I don't want to pry into anyone's family but am wondering as to the origins of this recipe card. The handwriting does look a lot like my mother's but a lot of women from that generation (mother was born in 1926) had similar handwriting. If it is from our family, the Aunt Minnie referred to would most likely have been Minnie Schutz Riley. There is no need to post this in the comments but I would love a reply to my email address if you think this recipe may be the one from our family. Either way, I am so happy to have found this recipe! Thank You so much for all the hard work you have put into this project.
