Pina Colada Bites

I served these bad boys at a party recently, and my friend popped one in her mouth, expecting a normal macaroon (which she's had before and loves). But tasting that this was not your ordinary macaroon, her eyes got big, she turned to me and exclaimed, "What did you DO?"

Not much really. It is seriously so easy to make these awesome cookies. Just take 1/2 cup THRIVE FD Pineapple powder/small pieces. Any dry foods tend to have some breakage (think potato chips, cereal, etc. You always have crumbs at the bottom of the bag) and FD fruits and veggies are no exception. But you don't have to throw away those crumbs with THRIVE. Throw them into soups, smoothies, oatmeal, or in this case, cookies.

So with your 1/2 cup of powder and crumbs, drizzle just enough cold water onto it to make a paste like you see below.  (Do 1 tsp at a time)

 Once you have your paste, add 2 cups of THRIVE Macaroon mix. Just be careful who you stand next to when you open the can. I swear that stuff is an olfactory aphrodisiac. Then add 1/4 cup hot water. Stir, and drop onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  This recipe will make about 2 dozen bite sized cookies.

Bake at 350 for 8-12 minutes, (longer if you do larger cookies). When the edges just barely start to caramelize and turn brown, that's when you know they're down. Let cool, eat and enjoy!
