  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 (8-ounce) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup Imperial Sugar® / Dixie Crystals® Granulated Sugar
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


Preparation time 25mins


Step 1

In a large bowl, cream the butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add the flour and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until easy to handle.

Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine sugar and flour; add pineapple and stir until blended. Cook over low heat until mixture comes to a boil and is thickened. Cover and refrigerate.

Divide dough in half. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each portion to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut into 3-in. squares. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.

To form star, make a 1-1/4-in. cut from each corner toward center (do not cut through center). Place 1/4 teaspoon of pineapple filling in the center of each. Fold every other point toward the center, overlapping pieces; press lightly to seal.

Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks to cool.

For frosting, combine the confectioners' sugar, butter, milk and vanilla in a bowl until smooth. Drizzle over cookies; sprinkle with walnuts.
