This is a cake-like, not overly sweet cookie with lots of interest in the nuts, pineapple, and banana flavors. I made them for a Christmas party and they were a nice change from the usual super-sweet chocolate/peppermint/cherry holiday fare (and I love all those things). I was short on time, so made the batter one night, covered in plastic wrap and refrigerated, and baked the next night. They turned out very nice and received lots of compliments. I also just used my hand to press them, and made a slight indention in the center so they baked flat (they do rise a bit when baking). I did make the icing, which added some sweetness, but I can see how they would be good without. I topped with shredded coconut for a festive look. Perfect for anyone who likes hummingbird cake, banana bread, spice cake, or for a unique holiday treat.

Made these for Christmas Eve and everyone kept going back for more. These are a soft cookie but even my mom who likes her cookies crisp went back for more and kept the few that were left.
