Would make this again.
These cookies are refreshing, because of the pineapple flavor in the cookie and the icing. I made them with fresh pineapple for the cookie and the icing. These are for anytime of the year. 5 stars

Would make this again.
Will make these again and not just at Christmas. I got about 3 dozen from the recipe. They needed the sweetness in the glaze. Cookies held up well to being frozen and actually tasted better the second day. 5 stars
