  1. This is very good cookie. I made these for a party and they were all gone before others I had made were. If your looking for something different try these!!
  2. My kids and husband ADORE these cookies with a couple of minor changes: I use Light brown sugar (instead of dark), I omit the coconut and I add about 1/8 teaspoon of baking powder to fluff them up a little. I agree with a previous reviewer, they turn out MUCH better on a parchment covered cookie sheet; I recommend 20 minutes baking time in a preheated oven. When storing, we have found it helpful to stack in an airtight container with waxed paper between each row. I am also trying to calculate the "Points" value for Weight Watchers (Flex Program)...I believe they are about 3 points based on the listed nutrition information however, using a cookie dropper, I typically get about 48 cookies.
  3. This is a good cookie and goes together quickly. They were good with and without the coconut. I did expect them to have more of a pineapple taste. They did bake better on parchment than cookie sheet. The texture turned out not crispy and not soft and cake like, but somewhere in between. I will make these again when needing to use up pineapple.


I live in to Jacksonville, FL with my husband, 2 daughters (17 and 11), 4 cats, and 2 dogs. My favorite things to make are cookies/bars and pound cakes. I have had a great time cooking since discovering Recipezaar January 2002. This is a picture of my youngest cat, Lily. She is my sweet sweet little baby.
