Tropical Dried Fruit Choc Chip Cookies With a Crunch

READY IN: 25mins
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.
