Pina Colada Cookies

Here's my recipe that I entered in the Morgan County fair. I only got second place, but that's because my name isn't "Margaret" or "Betty Sue" and I'm not old enough to be a member of AARP. Nevertheless, these are some awesome cookies! My only tip is to make sure you use REAL butter. No margarine in these cookies.

Piña Colada Cookies

½ c Soft Butter
3/8 c Powdered Sugar
¼ c Shredded Coconut
1/3 c Diced Fresh Pineapple
1 c Flour

2 c Diced Fresh Pineapple
¼ c Sugar
2 Shots Pineapple Rum

Cream butter and sugar. Add coconut and pineapple until completely incorporated. Add flour ¼ c at a time. Form dough into small balls and place on cookie sheet. Press thumb into each cookie forming a well. Bake at 350 degrees 11-13 minutes until bottoms begin to brown. Take out of oven and allow to cool 2 minutes on cookie sheet, then immediately transfer to wire cooling rack.
While cookies are baking, add all topping ingredients to small saucepan. Bring to boil at medium-high heat. Allow to boil until liquid is cooked out (about 30 minutes), stirring frequently. Spoon onto each cooled cookie while topping is still hot.
