Glazed Pineapple Cookies

These soft cake like cookies were one of my grandma's specialties.

Glazed Pineapple Cookies

1/2 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple (reserve 2 tablespoons of the juice for glaze)
2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt

Pineapple Glaze

1 cup confectioners sugar
2 tablespoons pineapple juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, cream together shortening and brown sugar. Add the egg, beat well, then stir in vanilla and pineapple with juice. (Reserve 2 tablespoons of the juice for glaze.) Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and stir into the creamed mixture. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto cookie sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove cookies to racks to cool.

To glaze cookies, mix 1 cup of confectioners sugar with the 2 tablespoons of reserved pineapple juice in a small bowl. Dip tops of cooled cookies into the glaze. Allow glaze to set up before storing in an airtight container.

That's what I'll make for church on Sunday. We have refreshments every Sun. after church. I'm a hostess for April and I've been trying to think of something different to take. Thanks!
