Hi everyone! Today's recipe is an amazing cookie recipe, this one has to be one of the best cookies I have ever made, I loved them, I'm obsessed with them, and I'm not ashamed to say that when I baked them a few days ago, I ate 10 of them in a row... they are that good! I just couldn't stop eating them. I really recommend  you give these a try, and hopefully you will love them as much as I did!

Makes about 3 dozens

  • 3 cups of all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup of light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon of baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 2 sticks of unsalted butter soften (1 cup)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup of finely chopped pineapple,
  • 1/3 cup of sweeten shredded coconut, plus another 1/4 cup for garnish
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of pineapple juice

Preheat the oven to 300ºF (150ºC)

Combine the flour with ½ teaspoon of baking soda, ¼ teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon of baking powder, mix well, and set aside until you are ready to use it.

In an electric mixer blend the brown sugar and the granulated sugar until well combined, for about a minute or so, then add in the butter,  and continue to blend on medium speed until you get a grainy creamy texture for about 2-3 minutes. After everything is well incorporated, add in the egg, blend for about 30 seconds, and also add in the vanilla extract, pineapple juice, chopped pineapple, and 1/3 cup of shredded coconut. Blend on medium speed for 30 seconds or just until all the ingredients are well combined.

Set the speed to the lowest and slowly add in the flour mixture. Continue to blend on low speed until the flour is incorporated with the rest of the ingredients, but do NOT over-mix, you just want everything to come together without over-mixing.

To make the cookies, grab a tablespoon of the dough and roll it with your hands into a ball, place the cookie balls on a baking sheet, place them about 1½ in. apart from each other to prevent them from sticking together while in the oven.  Press each ball with your finger tips or a spoon, just a little bit to flatten them up a bit, and sprinkle them with more shredded coconut.

Bake them at 300ºF for about 20-22 minutes or until they become slightly brown. As soon as they are done, transferred them to a cold surface to cool down. Then Enjoy!
