Cookies, Recipe, Tropical
Pull out your sunglasses, throw on some sunscreen, and whip your bathing suit out because these cookies are going to leave you dreaming of tropical places.
With the pineapple chunks, macadamia nuts, and coconut, how can you resist them? To sweeten the deal a little more, I threw in some white chocolate chips. I know, I know, there is no need to thank me, it was my pleasure.
What are you waiting for? It is time to gather all of the ingredients and get your baking on. After all, these cookies are not going to bake themselves.
With love from my kitchen to yours,
