I love gifting homemade cookie mixes to friends, especially my baking adverse friends. When doing so, I need to make sure it’s as easy for them to execute as possible. We’re talking just-add-water type of easy. And that’s what I have for you today. You start with one master mix, add some simple mix-ins, package them in charming jars and add a cute tag with simple directions.

Transport yourself to the tropics with these coconut pineapple cookies. Thick and chewy, with bite-sized pieces of sweet pineapple and shredded coconut, you won’t be able to stop at one! This summer, enjoy these gems at the beach, lake, or pond, add a little imagination, and be transported to paradise without the extra expense.
