25 Days of Cookies Day 25 - Pineapple Cookies

These may not seem like a typical Christmas cookie - and they're not - but they are what my hubby requested, and I figure that you're all baked out anyway, what with it being Christmas Day and all... so here's another yummy cookie recipe!

Pineapple Cookies

1 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
2 cups sifted flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt (omit if using salted butter)
1 cup crushed pineapple
1/2 cup chopped peanuts (you can use other nuts like pecans or walnuts, but I don't because Hubby is allergic)

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Cream together butter and sugars.  Add egg and beat thoroughly.
  3. Sift together dry ingredients
  4. Add to creamed mixture alternately with pineapple
  5. Stir in nuts
  6. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a parchment lined cookie sheet, allowing 3-4 inches between each cookie
  7. Bake for 15-18 minutes
