Step 1

Preheat oven to 425° F. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Melt the shortening and butter together in the microwave. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together both the flours, baking powder, and cinnamon; add the melted mixture, milk, and pineapple, stirring just until combined.

At this point, you can just drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto the baking sheet about 1" apart and bake for 13-15 minutes, or until tops are lightly browned.

(OR) as I did..
I sifted a little flour over the top of the dough then used a spoon to pull the floured side against the side of the bowl so I could sift a little flour in the bottom of the bowl. Flour hands and pull off pieces of dough (or use a spoon) about the size of a small lemon, roll it around in your palms a few times, then place them on the baking sheet about 1" apart.

Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until tops are lightly browned.

Meanwhile, make the glaze..
Melt the butter in a small bowl in the microwave until fairly hot. Stir in brown sugar until thoroughly combined. Reheat for a few seconds to dissolve sugar, if needed.

Spoon (or brush) the glaze over tops of hot biscuits. Serve warm.
