Pina Colada Cookies

Serves: 6

Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a great weekend! For those of you who were hit by the snowstorm, I hope you and your family are safe and warm! My area of New Jersey ended up with 12 inches of snow, but my poor mom, who is in MA, had over 26 inches!! I hope that was our one (and only) snow storm of the winter! Fingers crossed! πŸ™‚

But, while you are stuck in the house, you might as well bake some delicious cookies and send your taste buds to a tropical island full of coconut and pineapple! I hope you enjoy this recipe! Have a great rest of your weekend! πŸ™‚

These cookies are soooo incredibly soft that they almost melt in your mouth! The softness reminds me of those delicious Loft House Cookies that my mom used to buy me when I was a kid! Plus these have my all time favorite flavor…coconut and the sweetness of pineapple! All I need is an umbrella drink (and maybe some warm weather) and I will be in tropical heaven! πŸ˜‰

    I have gone almost gluten free since finding out about my hashimoto's thyroiditis and am loving my coconut flour lately! I have not heard of coconut cream. Where would I find this and what is it? Also, do you think chopped apples would work instead of pineapple? Pineapple is a bit too high in sugar for me.

        No Trader Joe's here so I will have to try Whole Foods. Is it with the oils or somewhere else?
