These sweet, luscious fruits are one of my favorites! I like to eat pineapple freshly cut into chunks, I like to cook with it (ever have a sweet ham baked with pineapple on top? Yum) AND I like to bake with it!
Here is a recipe for soft pineapple cookies!
Soft Pineapple Cookies
1 package spice cake mix
1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained, juice reserved
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sweetened flaked coconut(optional)
Preheat oven to 350*.
Line cookie sheets with no-stick foil.
In a large mixing bowl place half of the cake mix along with the pineapple, 2 tablespoons of reserved juice, oil and egg.
Blend with an electric mixer on med high for 2 minutes or until blended and no lumps from cake mix remain.
Stir in the remaining cake mix with a wooden spoon until all dry ingredients are moistened.
Drop dough by teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto prepared cookie sheets.
Sprinkle cookie tops with coconut and press gently into dough (optional).
Bake 10-13 minutes or until set at edges and just barely set at center when lightly touched.
Cool about 1 minute on cookie sheets.
Transfer to cool.
