Piña Colada Cookies #Recipe #25DaysofCookies #25DaysofChristmas

Day 18 of the 25 Days of Cookies! Today I’m featuring a cookie by my friend Di because I had my first cookie fail yesterday. It wasn’t a TOTAL fail, but her recipe turned out so much better than mine. We both were trying to make up our own Piña Colada cookies. Believe me, hers are MUCH better. I went shopping today to get missing ingredients for a few cookies I want to try. I’m going to get to baking as soon as I get this post published!

  1. You’re amazing this year, but how do you resist all these?

    • Who said I was resisting. Actually most of them I’ve been able to just taste one or two and be done with them. A few of them, though… I’ll have another 10 lbs to get off after Christmas!

  2. Yum! I’ve made a similar cookie but without the cream of coconut, that sounds yummy! Too bad no one else in my family likes coconut 🙁

  3. I love pina colada so this looks good

    I would love to try this recipe. Sounds delicious and I love anything coconut! I probably would not add the cherry since I’m not a big fan of those.
