  • Ingredients

    1 – 432 g pkg French Vanilla cake mix (1)

    1/3 cup canola oil (75 mL)

    2 large eggs (2)

    1 1/2 tsp coconut extract (7 mL)

    1/2 tsp nutmeg (2 mL)

    3/4 cup chopped dried pineapple (175 mL)

    1/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut, toasted* (75 mL) + 1/4 cup (60 mL) more for decorating cookies

  • Directions

    To a large bowl, add cake mix, canola oil, eggs, coconut extract and nutmeg. Mix with a fork just until combined. Mix in pineapple and ⅓ cup (75 mL) coconut until evenly distributed. Cover and place in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

    Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

    Scoop cookie dough with a 1 Tbsp (15 mL) scoop and roll into balls. Transfer dough balls to baking sheets, placing them 2 inches (5 cm) apart.

    Decorate each cookie with a piece of dried pineapple and sprinkle with additional toasted coconut.

    Bake for 8 – 10 minutes, being careful not to let them brown. Cool for 5 minutes on baking sheets, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
