But the pineapple juice powder is really cool.
I also used my pineapple pastry press, and I just love these things. So so cool. You could use a small cookie cutter.
Pineapple Ginger Shortbread
1 stick (1/2 c) butter, softened to room temperature
1/4 c sugar
1 Tbsp Pineapple Juice Powder
1 tsp ground ginger (to taste)
1 c flour
Preheat oven to 300 F. Cream together butter and sugar. Add in the remaining ingredients. I like to pulse everything together in a food processor, so as not to over mix. When you can press the dough together with your fingers, press it into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for about 10-15 minutes.
|Don't overmix. This is good.|
|Ready to chill|
Roll out to about 1/2" thickness. Cut out into shapes (I like my pineapple shaped pastry press - dip into a mixture of sugar, pineapple juice powder, and ginger in between cookies) and put onto a lined cookie sheet. Put the pan in the freezer for about 5 minutes (this helps the cookies keep their shape), then bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Enjoy.
