“It's that time of the year again, when your kitchen smells like fresh-baked cookies all season long. When there is pineapple and coconut involved, you know it's good. These are my favorite. I originally got the recipe from but I made a few changes. And a batch goes a long way (you'll like that) ;) Enjoy!”
