    • 4 Tbsp pineapple juice
    • 2/3 cup all purpose flour
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • 1/4 tsp salt

    • 2/3 cup brown sugar (packed)
    • 1-can pineapple rings
    • 6-maraschino cherries

    How to Make It

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray your muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a mixing bowl, add eggs, white sugar, and pineapple juice. Beat for 2 minutes. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to the wet ingredients and turn mixer back on for 2 minutes.
  • In a small sauce pan, melt the butter and add the brown sugar. Stir on low heat for one minute.
  • Spoon a layer of the warm brown sugar mixture into the bottom of each muffin tin, then place a pineapple ring on top. Add a cherry in the middle of each pineapple. Pour cake mixture over to fill muffin tin 3/4 of the way full. If you are using regular muffin tins, you will need to cut down the rings to fit or just use pineapple tidbits.
  • Bake jumbo cakes for 25 minutes. Bake regular cakes for 20 minutes. If you choose to make a large cake, bake for 22-25 minutes in a 10 inch cast iron skillet.
  • Remove from the oven. Let cool in pan for 3 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of each cake to help loosen in case it sticks a little. Place a wire cooling rack on top, and quickly flip over on top of sheet tray to catch extra drippings.
  • Place wire rack of cakes on sheet tray to cool.

    Peanut Butter Blossoms

    • 48 Hershey's Milk Chocolate Kisses*
    • 1/2 c. shortening
    • 3/4 c. creamy peanut butter
    • 1/3 c. sugar
    • 1/3 c. packed brown sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 2 tbsp. milk
    • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
    • 1 1/2 c. flour
    • 1 tsp. baking soda
    • 1/2 tsp. salt
    • Small bowl of granulated sugar

    How to Make It

  • Preheat the oven to 375 F. Remove wrappers from the chocolates. In a large bowl beat the shortening and peanut butter until blended. Add sugar and brown sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla and beat well. Stir together the flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually beat it into the peanut butter mixture until combined.
  • Shape the dough into 1 in. balls. Roll in the bowl of granulated sugar and place on an ungreased cookie sheet about 1 in. apart. Bake for 8-10 min. or until lightly browned. Remove from oven.
  • Immediately press a kiss into the center of each cookie; the cookie will crack around the edges. Once you have pressed all the kisses in, let them sit for a min. and then come back and gently smoosh the kisses into the cookie once more. This prevents them from falling off while eating. Remove from cookie sheet and cool on a wire wrack.
  • I did not make 48 cookies, I got about 30 or so with this recipe. Hey, you can eat the extras! I also found out that Hershey's Hugs (white chocolate) are really good too! And I suppose that dark chocolate might be good as well....
  • These cookies are ALWAYS made during the holidays at my family's house. My dad loves them! Great classic that will never get old!
