Hawaiian Summertime Cookies

This is just something I dreamed up (I’m sure there is something similar out there) because I can not wait until everyday is warm & sunny.  I’d also love to go to Hawaii…that isn’t happening (at least anytime soon) so I brought some of the tastes of Hawaii to myself!  Enjoy!
