Recipe Tips

While on the “far” west coast of the United States, Maui, one of the small islands of the Hawaiian islands, provides us with many agricultural crops that create a truly American cuisine. Maui offers such treats as macadamia nuts, pineapple, Maui onions and sugar cane.

Recipe Comments and Reviews


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
