I took a long detour around a pineapple fritter recipe and concocted these. We found them to be quite tasty.

This was soooo good, I'm glad I didn't have to share with anyone. I made these while "under the weather", and feasted on them all day long! What a way to pamper myself! If you want an easy and scrumptious treat, this is it. However, let me say I did change, or rather substitute, some things. I really don't like coconut in something but I love the flavor so used 2 tsp coconut extract. Then I had no macadamia nuts so used 1/3 cup pinenuts, didn't have to chop them!
