Another favorite that we made every Christmas. They freeze well too. A simple confectioners' glaze can be used on these cookies or a heavier frosting. I made a pineapple glaze this time, so as not to waste the leftover pineapple from the cookies. These cookies are even better the next day!


Enjoy!

How to Make ~ Pineapple Nut Cookies ~

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Lightly grease baking sheet or line with parchment paper as I did.

    Sift the dry ingredients together. Set aside.

    Cream sugars and shortening, add egg and beat in well. Beat in vanilla and 1 cup pineapple.

    Now add flour mixture beating well after each addition. Mix in the nuts.
  • 2Drop by teaspoonfuls on prepared sheet.
  • 3Bake for 8 - 10 minutes or until just beginning to golden around edges. I always remove from oven when they look like they're not quite done on the top, this insures they aren't over baked. Cool on rack.
  • 4Mix glaze ingredients in a bowl. Add more or less sugar, depending on your preference in thickness.
  • 5I glaze while still warm, then go back and add a little more glaze later. You can use a simple confectioner's sugar glaze without the pineapple or a whipped frosting, such as cream cheese. I've made the cream cheese before and added some pineapple to it.

    Freeze well. Keep in an air tight container.

    Enjoy!
