Delicious, melt in mouth , soft mouth watering cookies infused with flavors of tropical fruit – Pineapple. After making Orange cookies in winter, this summer, I decided to make delish cookies with Pineapple. Now my family is not big fan of pineapple so every time I purchase it, I look for ways to make them have this fruit 😉
