Featured at the 2010 Inn to Inn Cookie Tour, these cookies are named for one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the White Mountains- one bite and you’ll think you are in Paradise, or at least back at the inn!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream together butter and sugars. Add egg and vanilla, crushed pineapple, and pineapple juice and beat at medium speed until smooth. Add flour, baking soda and nuts and beat on low speed until just combined. Do not over-mix. Drop by rounded tablespoons into the coconut. Roll balls in coconut and place onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet approximately 1 ½ inches apart. Bake for 22-24 minutes or until cookies begin to turn lightly brown on edges. Transfer immediately to a cooling rack. Yield: 3 dozen
