Soft Iced Pineapple Cookies

Maggie ^O^


I love chocolate.

But sometimes you simply need something different.

These cookies will surely fit the bill for different and yummy.

They are sweet, they are soft and few people would expect a pineapple cookie.

Try them .. you won't be sorry !

    Immediately remove from baking sheet to a cooling rack.

    Spred on the tops of the cooled cookies.
  • 8These cookies keep very well in an airtight container and stay nice and soft and moist for a very long time.
  • 9***** NOTES:

    I have used fresh pineapple in these cookies and let me tell you, they are even more awesome !

    Also, I made this same recipe with fresh oranges and they were delicious.

    If you like coconut you might consider adding a small amount of that to your batter.
