Heat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheets with unsalted shortening. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Dissolve baking soda in crushed pineapple. Work butter in a bowl until creamy; add sugar and beat until well blended. Add egg and vanilla and mix well. Gradually add sifted dry ingredients, mixing well after each addition.
