Pineapple Upside Down Sugar Cookies


Pineapple Upside Down Sugar Cookies.  This is a different kind of cookie and nice to make for a change.  Easy to take along with you as well.

1 cup vegan buttery sticks, room temperature
1 + 1/2 cups organic sugar or coconut palm sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup sour cream (I used reduced fat)
3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. salt
13 slices canned pineapple
1/2 cup vegan butter, melted
1 cup organic light brown sugar, packed

Optional: garnish with raspberries

Brown Sugar Cookies

The secret behind these really good cookies is the caramelized butter. This may seem like a waste of time, an extra few minutes, but it’s worth it.  You must use real butter to do this, not imitations.

To make these cookies you will need

14 tbsp unsalted butter (I used the real butter for this recipe, not the vegan sticks)
1/4 cup organic sugar or coconut palm sugar (I used a stevia blend which will work as well)
2 cups packed organic dark brown sugar (You can make your own here)
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour plus 2 tbsp
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp table salt
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1 tbsp vanilla extract
