Today we have another installment of Tiny Gardener's Oven Lovin!
Go over to her blog and post your recipe(s)......here's my contribution:
2 Cups Flour
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Salt
1/2 Cup Butter or Margarine
1 Cup Sugar
1/2 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 Cup Crushed Pineapple (drain juice)
1 Tbsp. Sugar
Sift first for ingredients together, put aside. Cream butter & sugar. Add egg, vanilla, pineapple & 1 Tbsp. Sugar. Gradually add dry ingredients & mix until combined. Sprinkle with chopped Pecans (if you want, unless of course, you are alergic to them, then leave them off just a few of them so the rest of us can enjoy them.....sorry Gloria!) Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes.
Mrs. Mund's Fruit Cookies
1 1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Butter
2 2/3 Cup Flour
1/2 tsp. EACH Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cloves (powdered, not whole)
1 tsp. Soda
1 Cup Pecans or Walnuts (or Almonds...you know, if you're alergic to Pecans and Walnuts....Gloria!!)
1 Cup Dates, chopped
1 Cup (or the whole 8 oz. tub if you REALLY like those thingies) Candied Fruit & Peel
2 Tbsp. Wine
Combine flour, spices, soda. Cream sugar & butter, then add eggs, & wine. Gradually add flour mixture until combined. Add nuts, dates and fruit thingies and mix. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 - 15 minutes.
The Pineapple Cookies are from my Mom's recipe collection and the Mrs. Mund's Fruit Cookies came from Gloria's recipe book. I am not a fan of fruit cake, but I DID enjoy (more than a few) the Fruit Cookies. So if you're an avid Fruitcake-hater, try the cookies......they were yummy!
