Cooking and Entertaining: Pineapple Coconut Cookies

pineapple coconut cookies


Some foods just pair well together, like chocolate and peanut butter, working synergistically to enhance each others’ flavors. Another classic pairing is pineapple and coconut, and being the cookie fan that I am, I couldn’t resist trying this recipe almost immediately after I found it.

These cookies taste like and have the texture of a soft sugar cookie, but have the additional subtle flavors and textures of pineapple and toasted coconut. They didn’t disappoint-in fact, they were even better than I expected and have become one of my favorites!
