I am sure you all remember all of the goodies that my Mom gave to me. Well, in one of those plastic totes there was a couple old cookbooks and also a bag full of old recipes that my grandmother had saved. After going through that bag full of recipes, I found lots of old recipes that were from my great great grandmother. I was excited to find some of those old recipes and today I decided to try one out. After doing a little research on some old terms that were used back then when cooking/baking, I was able to proceed in baking some Pineapple Cookies. If you all like pineapple then you will indeed love this recipe!! So, grab yourself an index card/recipe card and write down this very simple yet delicious recipe that was a family favorite from my Mom’s side. Oh – you won’t be disappointed in these…..they are delicious!!
-1/2 cup of Crisco, butter or oleo (I used butter flavored Crisco)
- 1 cup of packed brown sugar
- 1 small can of crushed pineapple drained
- 2 cups of flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
-1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup of nuts
Cream together: Crisco, brown sugar, and egg. Drain your small can of crushed pineapple and set the juice aside. Add the crushed pineapple to the mixture first. Sift 2 cups of flour…. 1/4 tsp salt… 1/2 tsp baking soda… 1 tsp baking powder….1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 cup of nuts of your choice. Mix well and spoon on to baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees.
Cool and then we will make the icing!
Icing: 1 cup of powdered sugar, lump of butter which equals 1 stick of butter and pineapple juice to make the right consistency.
Mix all ingredients together and add just a little bit of pineapple juice to help make the icing the right consistency that you like. Ice the cookies and enjoy!!
Hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as I did. I told my Mom I was making these cookies today and she said that she can recall her grandma making them. She said that her grandma would make them frequently and she would always enjoy a couple cookies with a glass of milk. Mmmm, sounds like the perfect snack to me. Yep, I think this is a new favorite of mine too!
Until Next Time…….
