My husband wanted a cookie that had a toasted nut flavor without any chocolate or white chocolate. This is the same base as my chocolate chip cookie recipe. The add-ins are the only difference.
I tried using different extracts, pineapple juice, fresh pineapple, they all flavored the batter so the richness was lost.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small mixing bowl and put aside. Chop pineapple and put aside.
2
In large mixing bowl cream shortening, butter, sugars, vanilla and milk. Add eggs one at a time. Slowly add flour mixture being careful not to over mix. Do not scrape bowl.
3
Gently fold in the chopped pineapple, coconut and chopped macadamia nuts. Scraping the bowl as you fold. Do not over mix, you'll lose the chewy texture. Refrigerate dough for 20-30 minutes.
