Pineapple Fresh

5 Dec

Day 5 is all about the fresh fruits.

Today is the pineapple cookie from Allrecipes.com.

I changed it by using FRESH pineapple.

This has it’s benefits but requires some changes.

1. Preheat oven to 325 F

2. Mix 1/2 cup of shortening and 1 c of brown sugar together. Then add 8oz of crush pineapple. Add one egg then a dash of vanilla.

3. In a separate bowl mix 3 c of flour, 1 1/2 t of baking powder, 1/4 t of baking soda, and 1/4 t of salt. Gradually add this to your wet mixture.

4. Place a tablespoon of the cookie mixture on a ungreased cookie sheet. Place in oven for 10-12 minutes

What changes did I make? The original recipes calls for 2 c of flour, but since I used fresh pineapple and didn’t drain the 8oz completely I needed more flour. The first batch looked like this:

So I added 1 c flour, and bam, done.

You can frost these with a powder sugar and pineapple juice mixture. Make a paste by gradually adding some pineapple juice to a cup of powdered sugar. Don’t do it the opposite or you will use a whole bag of powdered sugar and still be needing more!
