they were so easy to make...taste great
This excellent recipe is just as good using walnuts .
I just made these at the request of my mother. I found them to be OK. Overall I felt they lacked flavor. I was expecting a much bigger tropical flavor, but was really underwhelmed. I also found the dough very moist. I think I would refrigerate it before baking next time and perhaps add almond extract to punch it up a bit.
A friend made these and they were so good!!! Now I make them for club benefits, parties, and for home. They are moist and filled with coconut and a wonderful pineapple taste. Because of today's prices, I use walnuts.
Just to say a few words...I made these to try for a cookie exchange and I haven't been able to stop mkaing them. They are soft and moist and kids love them.
