  1. Ingredients

    2 sticks of unsalted room temperature butter

    1/4 tsp salt

    8 ounce can crushed pineapple in juice

    5-6 cups powdered sugar


    Drain the pineapple and set juice aside

    cream together butter, salt, half of the pineapple fruit and 5 tbsps of the juice

    Add powdered sugar about 1/2 cup at a time until desired consistency.

    Continue to taste the frosting for desired pineapple flavor. If it’s too sweet you can add a dash of salt or more pineapple flavor add more juice but you then need to add more sugar so add small amounts at a time.

    Put in an airtight container until ready to use.
