Pina Colada White Chocolate Cookies

June 6, 2019Teresa

Pina Colada White Chocolate Cookies are crazy good! Seriously, you can’t beat a simple 5-ingredient cookie that tastes as great as this. 🙂 These adorable cookies start with a Pineapple Supreme cake mix. That makes these cookies a lot less complicated. I added eggs, oil, coconut and white chocolate chips. NOT vanilla chips. But REAL white chocolate chips. They just exploded with flavor and deliciousness.

Every now and then it’s time to restock my freezer with cookies. My husband gives cookies out every where he goes. About six years ago, he asked me if I would bake up cookies for some friends he was going to visit. From that time on, I’ve tried to keep my freezer stocked with plastic containers of cookies, brownies or bars. I decided to make several kinds of cake mix cookies, including my favorite Strawberry White Chocolate Cookies. To this day, every time we give out a batch of those cookies, everyone raves over them.

I used the same basic concept with this Pina Colada version. They turned out so well. Especially if you enjoy the flavors of coconut and pineapple. These cookies will just make your heart sing. 🙂  The nice thing about these cookies is they can be whipped up in about 5 minutes. It only takes about 5 minutes longer to roll them and put them on cookie sheets. They bake in about 15 minutes. Yes, in about 30 minutes you have a delicious dessert that’s terrific for tailgating parties, potlucks, backyard barbecues or even baby showers.

Pina Colada White Chocolate Cookies will just dissolve in your mouth. Before you know it, you’ll find you’ve downed three or four with a glass of milk. The next time you need a quick and easy dessert, give these luscious cookies a try.

Roll dough into balls and place on cookie sheets that have been sprayed well with cooking spray. I had to keep my hands slightly moist while rolling.

Bake 13-15 minutes at 350 or until done. (My cookies actually took about 18 minutes because I was baking three pans at once). Rotate pans every 6-7 minutes.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine cake mix, oil and eggs.
  3. Stir in white chocolate chips and coconut.
  4. Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray.
  5. Roll cookies into balls and place three-inches apart on prepared baking sheets.
  6. Bake at 350° for 13-15 minutes or until done.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: Because I was baking three racks of cookies at once, my cookies took about 18 minutes to make. I also rotated the trays every six minutes.

NOTE: These cookies must be rotated during baking or the white chocolate chips will brown on the top rack.

NOTE: I found these cookies did better by rolling the dough into balls than using a cookie scoop.

NOTE: Be sure to use true white chocolate chips. Most stores only carry white or vanilla chips. They are not the same. In the Dallas area the only two stores that carry white chocolate chips are Kroger and Trader Joe’s.

NOTE: I found it easier to keep my hands slightly moist while rolling the cookie dough.

    Hi! I’m wondering what the texture is like? Is it chewy like a real cookie, or simply more cakey?

      Hi Samantha. It’s chewy like a real cookie.

    I love coconut but some others don’t because of the texture (stringy). Do you think chopping it up in the blender to make it fine will ruin the texture of the cookie or the taste? Janice Wilson

      Hi, Janice. I don’t think it would hurt it, yet you still maintain the coconut flavor. Another option would be to add coconut extract instead.
