A pineapple-coconut cookie with a hint of rum. I started out to make a plain pineapple cookie but then got daring and in the process I discovered a great cookie.

I made these for the daughter of my best friend and I was surprised how good they were. Delicious and a very nice looking cookie as well. I did make changes. I omitted the milk and rum extract and instead used 2 Tablespoons of strong Jamaican rum and 1 teaspoon vanilla. This made the rum flavor more pronounced and I was very pleased. Read More

The flavor is great with this recipe but because it begins with a cake mix the end result has a consistancy of cake not a cookie. I had to give it only three stars because it doesn't have any cookie crunch. Read More

very moist/cakey texture (which is how I like my cookies!) I used spiced rum and the mix of pineapple/coconut/rum was great! Read More

Unique cookie. At first I thought they were just ok. I don't think they are too sweet but it does mostly taste like pineapple. After these cookies sat in a tin for a week with other cookies when we opened it my son husband and I grabbed out a pina colada cookie over all the others so we must have liked them alot. Read More

Delicious! I love coconut so I added a TSP of coconut flavoring. The texture is really unique because of the cake mix; crunchy on the edges more cake-like in the center. Really good! I also drizzled a powdered sugar glaze over the top once they'd cooled just to make 'em a little prettier. These are always a hit at parties! Read More

While the taste is good it really is not low carb. When there's 9 gms of carb in 1 cookie that is too much to be considered low carb imo. I agree that it is more cake like than cookie. Read More
