Piña Colada Cookies

A tropical taste to take you away!

Happy new year! First recipe of 2022 and it’s very tropical, because I had enough of the holiday bakes. It’s refreshing and definitely easy and that is my goal for my recipes. Easy for all to make and enjoy! We threw these together and it was indeed an experiment; Casey had broke the egg too hard so we only used the egg yolk in this recipe. Our chickens make really hard to break yolks thank goodness! These cookies are very chewy and not overly sweet. Something that would go well with your afternoon tea.
