Pineapple Cookies

Pineapple cookies are soft and pillowy drop cookies filled with fruity and tropical pineapple flavor. Enjoy these  pineapple drop cookies plain or with a sweet pineapple juice glaze.

In a mixing bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together until well combined.

Step 1:  

Using a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment or electric hand mixer with beaters, cream the room temperature butter and cream cheese together until they are smooth and well combined. This takes about 2 minutes on medium speed. Scrape sides and bottom of the bowl.

Step 2:  

Cream the butter and cream cheese mixture on medium speed with the light brown and granulated sugars for another 2 minutes. On low, mix in the egg, vanilla extract and pineapple juice until smooth and well combined.

Step 3:  

Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined. Fold in th drained crushed pineapple. Cover the dough and chill in the fridge for 30 - 60 minutes or up to overnight.

Step 4:  

Scoop about 1½ - 2 tablespoons of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake the glazed pineapple sugar cookies for 13 - 15 minutes. The bottom of the cookies will be very lightly golden brown.

Step 5:  

Remove the cookies from the oven onto a cooling rack. After 4 -5 minutes, transfer the cookies off the hot baking sheet and onto the cooling rack to cool to room temperature.

Step 6:  

Make the pineapple glaze for the pineapple drop cookies by mixing 2 - 3 tablespoons (30 ml) reserved pineapple juice with 1 ½ cups (180 g) of powdered sugar until well combined. Top each cookie with the pineapple glaze.
