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.

Tuesday Tip

Baby Oil as Chrome Polish
via Real Simple
Forget keeping skin soft, baby oil also polishes chrome. 
Apply a dab to a cotton cloth and use it to shine 
everything from faucets to hubcaps.

You'll end up with shiny, happy surfaces from a medicine-cabinet staple.
(Who actually owns chrome cleaner, anyway?)

Valentine's Day Recipe

Raspberry Ice Cream Sandwiches

Raspberry Ice Cream Sandwiches

{ makes 6 servings }
1 container (quart size) vanilla ice cream
1 cup raspberries (slightly mashed)
8 oz butter (softened)
3/4 cup caster sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
2 1/4 cups plain flour (sifted)
Prepare the Raspberry Ice Cream
Allow the ice cream to soften a little before transferring to a bowl and stirring through the raspberries. Using a spatula, smooth the mixture into a rectangular container about 1 inch deep, lined with baking paper, and freeze overnight.
Bake the Vanilla Cookies
Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until pale and creamy. Add the vanilla and egg yolk and beat to combine. Beat in the flour until a smooth dough forms. Wrap in plastic and place in the fridge for 30 minutes, or until firm. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 F and line a baking tray with paper.
Roll the dough out between two sheets of paper until 1/4 inch thick. Using a round, fluted 1 inch cookie cutter, cut 12-14 rounds. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes on the tray, then pop them into the freezer until ice-cold.
Assemble the Sandwiches
Using the same fluted cookie cutter, cut 6 rounds of raspberry ice cream (you may wish to run the cutter under hot water first to make this easier!). Carefully sandwich the ice cream rounds between two vanilla cookies and ta-da, you're all set for Valentine's Day dessert.
p.s. Store them in the freezer wrapped in baking paper for up to a week.
