I made these for the daughter of my best friend and I was surprised how good they were. Delicious and a very nice looking cookie as well. I did make changes. I omitted the milk and rum extract and instead used 2 Tablespoons of strong Jamaican rum and 1 teaspoon vanilla. This made the rum flavor more pronounced and I was very pleased.

The flavor is great with this recipe, but because it begins with a cake mix, the end result has a consistancy of cake, not a cookie. I had to give it only three stars because it doesn't have any cookie crunch.

very moist/cakey texture (which is how I like my cookies!) I used spiced rum and the mix of pineapple/coconut/rum was great!

Has more of a pineapple taste than rum or coconut.

Unique cookie. At first I thought they were just ok. I don't think they are too sweet, but it does mostly taste like pineapple. After these cookies sat in a tin for a week with other cookies, when we opened it my son, husband, and I grabbed out a pina colada cookie over all the others, so we must have liked them alot.

While the taste is good, it really is not low carb. When there's 9 gms of carb in 1 cookie, that is too much to be considered low carb imo. I agree that it is more cake like than cookie.
