Pineapple Cookie Recipe

A Pineapple Cookie Recipe By Home Style Austin
Fabulously Fruity 

I had never heard of a pineapple cookie until last year when I first enjoyed these tasty treats. I’m a huge fan of pineapple and my friends who have had these have said they’re really good. So let’s get started!

Foodie Tips:

  • The only thing sadder than a wet blanket is a soggy pineapple cookie. Make sure and drain the pineapple.
  • I’m confident iodized salt is most often used for this recipe. I’m a salt lover and have five salt varieties in my kitchen. I used a kosher salt for these cookies and was treated to a little kick of salt in-between the pineapple nuggets. I liked.
  • I recently purchased a cookie scoop which makes forming cookies a snap. Give it a squeeze and see!

Ingredients: 

1 ¾ Cups  |  All-Purpose Flour
½ Teaspoon  |  Soda
¼ Teaspoon  |  Baking Powder
¼ Teaspoon  |  Salt
½ Cup  |  Brown Sugar, Firmly Packed
½ Cup  |  Sugar
½ Cup  |  Shortening
1  |  Cage Free Egg
1 Teaspoon  |  Vanilla Extract
½ Cup  |  Crushed Pineapple, Drained
½ Cup  |  Chopped Nuts (“nuts” is an abbreviation for Texas pecans)

Directions: 

0. Preheat oven to 375°F.

1. Combine flour, soda, baking powder and salt; set aside.

2. Combine sugars and shortening in a large mixing bowl (I used my Kitchen Aid); cream well.

3. Beat egg and vanilla into creamed mixture.

4. By hand stir-in the pineapple and nuts.

5. Fold-in half of the dry ingredients from step 1 above into the creamy mixture. Hand mix until well blended. Add/mix/blend the last half of dry ingredients.

6. Drop rounded tablespoonfuls of the cookie dough onto a greased cookie sheet.

7. Bake until light golden brown, about 12-15 minutes. If the first batch turns out a bit crispy, reduce the baking time on the next go.

Yields: About 24 cookies

    • Hi Melissa!

      We have to admit that Texas Pecans are near and dear to our hearts.

      Luckily, Texas Pecans’ best friends include walnuts, honey nut cashews, almonds … among other nutty friends. We love them all! Thanks for writing! ~ Patrick
