Pineapple Coconut Tassies
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 20 min./batch + cooling
These were very time-consuming and though the taste was wonderful, the cookie itself was dry and crumbling. I followed the directions exactly. They were still difficult to remove from the pans. The taste of the shortbread is amazing. I will try these one more time but maybe as a cookie with a shortened baking time.
Based on the review that the cookies were sweet I didn't add sugar to the filling. The cookies are very tasty. Even though I greased and floured the pans I had to use a knife around the edges to get the cookies out.
I made these last night. They are delicious. They were a little time consuming but worth it. The crust reminded me of a shortbread and the filling was awesome. I did use Crisco to grease the pans and outer area so they would not stick. They came right out. I did not flour the pans. I did let them cool before trying to remove them. For the glaze I used 1/4 tsp. vanilla and 1/8 tsp. almond extract. (I didn't have coconut extract.) My co-workers love these and they all want the recipe. Will totally make these again. Thanks Taste of Home!!
What a waste of time and money these were.I followed the directions to a tee.I laughed about the comment that these were "simple to make-an ideal choice for baking with children" Ya gotta be kidding me??I am a very experienced baker..there was nothing easy about making these! Most stuck to the pan-despite using Bakers Joy spray.They are VERY VERY sweet with a strange chewy texture.YUCK!
