Why Pineapple Hill?

The pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality since the days of the early American colonies. According to legend, the symbol began with the sea captains of New England who would spear a pineapple on a fence post outside their home to let the community know of their safe return home and to invite friends to visit and share their hospitality.

Likewise, we hope Pineapple Hill Designs boutique will make you feel “Welcome”! We know how important it is to find something special for that certain someone or just the right accessory to complete a room. We believe everyday is a day to celebrate, and we have just the thing to help you create something special out of the ordinary.

Lime Cookies

            Luscious Lime Cookies

via King Arthur 
1/2 cup (4 ounces) softened butter



Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
1) Mix together the butter, sugar, lime powder, lime oil, and salt; there's no need to beat at high speed, just mix together.
2) Mix in the flour. Cover the dough, and refrigerate for about 1 hour, or as long as overnight. Just before baking, preheat the oven to 325°F.
3) Remove the dough from the fridge, and scoop teaspoonfuls onto the baking sheet, 1 1/2" apart.
4) Bake the cookies for 12 to 14 minutes, until set and lightly brown around the edges.
5) Remove from the oven, and let cool for 10 minutes.
6) Mix the topping ingredients, and put in a 1-gallon zip-top bag.
7) Add 5 or 6 warm cookies at a time, and shake gently till they're coated. The sugar may get a bit sticky; that's OK.
8) Transfer the cookies to a rack to cool, then coat the completely cooled cookies in the sugar again.
