Heeeeeelp! Pina Colada Cake Mix Cookies

I have an Extra Moist Butter Deluxe (store brand) cake mix, coconut, crushed pineapple and a bottle of Bacardi rum (the real stuff, not the extract). Can I make Pina Colado cake cookies with this stuff, or do I need something else. I Googled "Pina Colado Cake Cookies," and it returned no matches, just scratch recipes.

I think I would save the butter cake mix and use pineapple cake mix instead. Add a little (very drained) pineapple, some flaked coconut and rum, along with the oil and eggs. I use my potato ricer to drain pineapple if I need it very dry for a recipe.

Let us know how your cookies turn out.

the recipe i found says to do just that katie. use the pineapple cake mix. i do think you need to be careful and only add wet stuff in tiny bits.

I will admit i haven't read the whole thread, but I made pina colada cookies this way and they turned out fine.

1 yellow cake mix
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup juice from crushed pineapple
1/2 cup really drained crushed pineapple
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1 tsp rum extract (they were for a youth bake sale so couldn't use the real stuff).

Anyways they were a complete hit. Don't know if this helps or not.
