  • To Make Filling: Mix cornstarch and 3/4 cup sugar, add pineapple and lemon juice. Bring to a boiling point and boil gently until the consistency of jam, stirring frequently to prevent burning. Cool before using.

  • Roll dough out thin and cut with cookie cutter or small glass. Put spoonful of filling on half the rounds, cover with others and seal edges with a fork. Sprinkle with sugar or cinnamon. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 10 minutes or so.

These cookies were amazing. We ran out of granulated sugar so we made a glaze with confectioners sugar and a little milk. They were like little turnovers. Read More

These were okay. Kind of rubbery. I probably won't be making them again. However the plate was empty by the end of the night someone in my house must have liked them. Read More

Turns out to be a very tasty cakelike old-fashioned cookie... but set aside a few hours to make them. I only got a dozen and a half out of this recipe but they were well received. Crimp gently with a fork. Dough is tender and rips easily but if you seal it with your fingers only they'll leak. Read More

When I made this I must have made the dough circles bigger than what it is suppose to be but I can't imagine putting the pineapple sauce on anything smaller. I ended up with a dozen cookies. However we loved the cookies. My husband took a few to snack on at work and his co-workers tasted one and asked him to have me make more! Read More

I made these for Christmas '07 cookie trays. I liked that the old-fashioned taste and appearance but I'm not sure many others did. The filling is reminiscent of pineapple ice cream topping which I happen to love. If you don't you probably won't like these cookies either. Read More

The recipe sounded great and I was trying to find some way to use a little leftover pineapple... Unfortunately the filling just did not work for me. And that's okay I had to throw out what was in the pan (it was like a big gluey hard mess!) but it wasn't a big deal. I had already made the dough so I just did tablespoon-sized drop cookies. They came out so soft and yummy very similar to the Carrot Cookies with Orange Glaze recipe my mother's been making since I was little but without the carrots and spice. Not too sweet so my husband (who has no sweet tooth at all!) enjoyed them. Thank you Jady I WILL try the filling again one day! Read More
