Pineapple Cream Cheese Cookies

Pineapple Creamcheese Cookies-4

Whenever the cold, snowy, grey winter weather gets us down, we head on over to our next guest’s table. Shari, from Tickled Red is always giving us a glimpse of sand and waves and capturing her laid back lifestyle with her surfer husband and her two monkeys boys. Shari’s outlook on life and the food that she serves is always full of sunshine and simple enjoyments. She’s creative, funny and well, we just like having her at our table. 

Who said Christmas cookies always have to be chocolate or peppermint?

No one which is why the boys and I treat the holidays as an opportunity to experiment with exciting new cookie flavors for our family and friends. These sweet tropical cookies are in homage to our dear Surferboy who is still stuck working in the Caribbean for another week.

Their hint of pineapple and coconut allow us to pretend that we are strolling down white powder beaches along side clear turquoise waters with dad.

Once topped with decadent cream cheese frosting and bites of pineapple there’s no turning back. These cookies are not only kid friendly but can be enjoyed during any special occasion.

Enjoy and happy holidays from our Family to yours!
Shari, Surferboy and The Monkeys
