My family goes crazy over these soft, fruity cookies. They are easy and quick to make too!
INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg, beat well, then stir in the vanilla and pineapple. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually stir into the creamed mixture. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
