Pineapple Sage Cookies

Our good friends at Brookside Gardens made these delightful cookies for us during our Nursery Tour in May.

This recipe was taken from “Herbs in a Minnesota Kitchen” by Bonnie Dehn & Jan Benskin

1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp finely minced pineapple sage

Cream butter & sugars.  Add egg, vanilla, pineapple, and pineapple sage.  Stir in sifted dry ingredients.  Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls on greased cookie sheets.  Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
