Holiday Baking Extravaganza

Tis that time of year, folks.  Yep.  Karla has been baking up a storm.  A perfect cookie storm, that is.  For some strange reason, all my cookies have turned out perfectly...

Well, except for these ones.



Lookit how ugly these cookies are, peeps.  And, it made a shitton of them.  So, now I have FIVE dozen ugly-ass cookies that I really don't want to put in my holiday gift boxes because they are so hideous looking.

(although all my taste testers told me they were quite delicious)

Maybe, I shall just put them at the bottom so they're not the first things people see?

Anywho, I thought I might share the recipe with all your fun folks this cheery Monday morning.  Here you go.  Don't say I never gave you anything ;)

Pineapple Cookie recipe


cream together: 
1 cup butter (softened)
2 cups granulated sugar

2 eggs
15 oz can crushed pineapple (in juice, NOT syrup), drained; reserve juice for glaze
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


add in:
4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking soda


drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 12 minutes



Glaze: (optional) I didn't do the glaze. my taste testers said the cookies were sweet enough without it.
