P Potluck Party

Our P Potluck Party was pretty fun. I made pigs in a blanket; Brandi made these wonderful pineapple chocolate chip cookies and pot roast with cranberry sauce. Our friends brought twice baked potatoes, pizza, pita bread and hummus, Parrot Bay rum, jalapeno poppers, Pepsi, PBJ sandwiches, peach pie and pecan pie. We had so much fun with our P’s that we decided to have a pot luck for every letter. We drew our next letter and it’s going to be “A” which is kind of anticlimactic if you ask me. We watched some football, played telephone pictionary, and took some pictures. I included the recipe for the pineapple chocolate chip cookies at the end of this entry. You should definitely try them. I’ve had maybe eight of these cookies since yesterday.

I love Brit’s reaction to pot roast.

All smiles!

Pineapple Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe taken from The Taste of Home Baking Book

These were a hit. You can barely taste the pineapple. I think the pineapple keeps the cookies soft even long after they cool. We’re definitely keeping this recipe.

1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 cans (8 ounces each) crushed pineapple, drained
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1. In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in pineapple and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture, Stir in chocolate chips.

2. Drop by rounded tablespoons 2 in, apart onto greased baking sheets. Press down lightly. Bake at 376 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
