  • Parchment Paper Sheets
  • Baking Sheet


For the cookies:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • freshly grated zest from 1 large or 2 small lemons
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple with juice
  • 3-1/2 cups flour

For the glaze:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 medium orange zested and juiced


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda together in a medium bowl.
  • Combine sugar, egg, oil, vanilla, lemon juice, and zest. Whisk until smooth. Stir in half of the flour, mix until just combined, repeat with the pineapple and juice, and finishing with the other half of the flour. Scoop onto parchment paper lined baking sheet by tablespoonfuls (no bigger!). Bake 10-12 minutes, until just barely starting to brown on the bottom edges. Remove from baking sheet and cool on a wire rack before glazing.

  1. My Husband just came into the kitchen where I was and asked Me what I was doing. When I told Him, I'm coping the recipe to the Fluffy Pineapple Cookies, his reaction was, "Soon, I hope". Looks like I'm gonna have to get the ingredients I need to make these Cookies!

  2. These look amazing but I’m not clear on the crushed pineapple with juice. I would think the amount of juice could vary widely each time. How do you measure this out? Do you pour the pineapple and juice right out of the can into the measuring cup or do you spoon it out? Maybe I haven’t had canned crushed pineapple in a while and I’m forgetting what it’s like. Lol. It’s probably more solid/homogeneous than I’m imagining.

  3. I want to make these but I am wondering I make up the batter the night before if they will still turn out right?

    1. The cookie dough should be fine. The colder it is the less it will spread when it bakes. I would try a test cookie and make sure it is to your liking. You could let it warm up a bit to room temp if needed.
