I'm not going to lie and say pineapple flowers are the easiest thing to make. However, they are not the hardest either. They just require a sharp knife and some time. As is true with most things, the more you make them, the easier they get (and the better you get at making them). So here we go.
- Sharp knife
- Cutting board
- Small measuring spoon, paring knife, or veggie peeler
- Muffin tins
- Sheet trays lined with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper
Bake them at 225 degrees to slowly dry them out. Baking times vary, but you'll want to start with 30 minutes, then flip the slices over, and then bake for another 30 minutes. The slices should shrink and be almost completely dry. The little dots in the middle of the flower happen naturally when they dry.
If they aren't dry after the hour, bake them for 5-10 minute increments and keep a close eye on them so they don't get too brown.
