Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two or more standard 12 cup muffin tins with paper liners.
Make the muffins: Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar. Add the beaten eggs and mix well. Add the bowl of dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and mix until just incorporated (do not over mix). Add the can of crushed pineapple and orange extract. Mix again briefly until the pineapple and extract are dispersed throughout the batter. Using a small measuring scoop, place batter into paper liners about 2/3 full. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the muffins spring back when pressed in the centers. Remove the muffins to a wire cooling rack.
Make the glaze: Combine the milk and butter in a medium saucepan. Place over medium-high heat and stir until melted (do not boil). Remove from the heat and stir in powdered sugar, orange extract, and salt. Add the food color if using. Pour glaze in a bowl and dip the tops of the muffins in the glaze. You may also spoon the glaze over the muffins if you prefer. Let stand until set, about 20 minutes.
