Pineapple Walnut Cookies shout surprise! The pineapple is not a list topper when you are thinking of cookie ingredients. The bits of pineapple bake sweet and a little chewy, a tasty second surprise. Rated superb taste in all categories – hot, cooled for 45 minutes, next day, and two days later. (I have to hide the cookies for two days later category!)
Mixing the dry ingredients before adding them to the other ingredients insures that they will be thoroughly distributed in the cookie dough. This is important for taste and to make sure that the leavening agents (baking powder and soda) are doing what they are supposed to do in each cookie evenly. I confess I cheat when I am in the midst of a marathon baking session. I add one leavening agent to the first cup of flour and sort of poke/mix it in the top inch or so before adding it to the mixture in the bowl. I repeat for the second leavening agent in the second cup of flour. This keeps the leavening agents from ending up in one spot – the worst case scenario. It works, especially if the dry ingredients are not the last ingredient added.
