Pineapple Coconut Cookies

I posted this recipe a while back, but finally made these delicious cookies again, and with pictures this time. April 27th, 2012

Aug 1, 2010: Nate has been telling me about how good these cookies are since we first started dating. His mom finally sent us the recipe, so we decided to try it out. The cookies turned out really delicious. And even though they probably aren’t that healthy for you, you feel like you’re eating something that is good for you because of the fresh fruit flavor.
