Number of Servings: 36


    1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple
    1/2 cup shortening
    1 cup packed brown sugar
    1 egg
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1-1/2 cups powdered sugar


Drain pineapple, reserving 3 tablespoons juice. Set pineapple aside; set juice aside for frosting. In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugar. Add egg; mix well. Add pineapple and vanilla; mix well. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 325* for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. For frosting, in a small bowl, combine powdered surgar with enough of the reserved pineapple juice to achieve a smooth spreading consistency. Frost cookies. Yield: 3 dozen
Note: If doubling recipe do not double frosting recipe- makes way too much icing. Also make sure that cookies are completely cooled or icing will melt and run off.

  • 1 cookie is 81 calories? I guess I don't see this as "low cal" - I think I may try to clean it up a bit by replacing out the oil and some of the other stuff.... nice starter recipe tho. - 1/31/10
