This came from a cooking newsgroup I lurk in occasionally. Since it features coconut, and that's our ingredient of the month, I thought it was a timely recipe. They re soft butter cookies filled with all the tropical goodies, pineapple, macadamia nuts, and of course, coconut.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350°F Combine sugar and Soft Baking Butter with Canola Oil in large bowl.
  2. Beat at medium speed until creamy.
  3. Add pineapple and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed.
  4. Reduce speed to low; add flour and baking powder.
  5. Beat until well mixed.
  6. Stir in nuts and 1/4 cup coconut by hand.
  7. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; dip top of each cookie into remaining coconut.
  8. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  9. Bake in oven 12-15 minutes or until set.

My family really liked these,however there was still a flour taste to them. Next time I think maybe I will add a teaspoon of lime or orange juice in place of the vanilla. When rolling the cookies beware they are really gooey. Good cookie though a nice change.
