I love the idea of this cookie and have made it a few times now. I think it is 5 star-worthy with the following revisions: I use 3 cups of flour, 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, 1 8oz. can of pineapple WITH all of the juice, 1 1/2 cups white choc chips, 1 1/2 cups macadamia nuts, 5 drops candy oil, the oil is a MUST! Everything else stays the same, use a small ice cream scoop and fill them generously, bake for 16-18 mins. SO GOOD!


This was a good cookie recipe idea! I made the cookies as per the recipe. If the cookies are to be the size of a golfball it makes about 6-7 dozen. Also the baking time of 15-20 minutes seemed a little excessive. If the cookies are made the size of a golf ball and baked 20 minutes they were too overdone for our tastes. We baked at 325 in a convection oven in our bakery for 12 minutes. They were moist at this temperature and time. The flavor was good with the addition of the candy oil.


My Mother made these cookies for a Hawaiian theme party and everyone raved about them. These cookies are moist and delicious and really make you think of the tropics.
