The coconut, pineapple and nuts combine in these scones to give them a taste of the tropics.
Heat oven to 400°F.
Combine flour, brown sugar and baking powder in bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 1/2 cup coconut and macadamia cashew mix.
Beat pineapple, reserved pineapple juice and eggs in another bowl until well mixed; stir pineapple mixture into flour mixture (mixture may be slightly dry). Knead about 10 times or until mixture forms a dough, adding small amount of flour, if necessary.
Divide dough in half. Pat each half into 6-inch circle. Place onto large ungreased baking sheet. Cut each circle into 6 wedges. Do not separate. Sprinkle each circle with 1 tablespoon coconut.
Bake 13-15 minutes or until scones are lightly browned. Separate into individual scones.

This recipe was ok but not great. You could hardly taste the pineapple and I was surprised that it said " knead about 10 times". Typically you keep the dough as cold as possible for scones and handle it very little. I realize this was a dry dough that needed to be made into a ball but I think kneading it made it a bit tough. Also I would bake the scones at a bit lower temperature and not put the coconut on top until the last 5 minutes so it does not turn too brown.
I used a cutters to make individual round scones (it made 16 but I have a tendancy to over-knead so they were a bit flat) I used sliced almonds (crushed up) in place of the macadamia / cashew nuts and used 1/8 c. Crushed pineapple & 1/8 c. Canned mandarin oranges (sliced). I also didnt sprinkle additional coconut on top. They were tasty and sweet and so quick and easy to make.
I lightened the recipe by reducing butter to 3 Tbsp and using 1/3 cup applesauce. It was delicious! I also used toasted pecans in place of macademias & cashews

Once the temperature drops a few degrees, I’m in full-on fall foods mode. Pumpkin bars, apple crisp, cranberry bread…you name it, I’m making it. However, most of it revolves around sweets. Why doesn’t dinner get a fair chance?
