My husband and I were talking Christmas cookies the other day, he was asking if I could make a pineapple upside down cookie this year since he loves the cake so much. I started looking online to see what I could find to make these little gems for him; I was really surprised at how many versions I ran across. After about 10 minutes of looking I found the perfect recipe for me, it used a box cake mix. I knew this would turn out amazing and also be quick and easy.
4 - Eggs
1/2 C. - Oil
1 C. - Candied Cherries (chopped)
1 C. - Candied Pineapple (chopped)
18.25 Oz. - Pineapple Cake Mix (you will need 2 boxes)
1/4 C. - Brown Sugar
1 1/2 Tbs. - Butter (soft)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Mix eggs, oil and 1 box of cake mix using either your stand mixer or hand mixer. Once combined mix in the other cake mix then fold in the candied fruit, this mix will be very thick. In another dish mix together the butter and brown sugar, then set aside. On a parchment lined baking sheet place about 1 inch balls of dough about 2 inches apart then sprinkle with a little of the brown sugar butter mix. Bake the cookies for 8-11 minutes or just until the edges are golden brown. Let cool on the rack for 1 minute then transfer to a cooling rack. My husband was very happy that I found this recipe and made these cookies for him, they were so easy to make and are big on flavor.
