Recipe by For Goodness Bake!
After spotting dried pineapple pieces at the grocery store, I had the idea of baking cookies which were different than the ordinary oatmeal raisin cookie. The rice krispies give them a nice crunch, but they are still chewy and soft with the coconut. Any type of dried fruit can be substituted for the pineapple pieces that I suggest. These cookies are sweet, so you may reduce the amount of sugar used, although I have not tried it. This batter is easily doubled.
- 1⁄2 cup butter or 1⁄2 cup margarine, softened
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup Rice Krispies
- 1⁄2 cup chocolate chips (more if desired)
- 1⁄2 cup shredded coconut
- 3⁄4 cup dried pineapple, cut to size
