Hawaiian Holiday Cookie Exchange

Hawaiian Holiday Cookie Exchange

Every year, we participate in an annual Hawaiian Holiday Cookie Exchange. It's a great way to connect with our community during the holidays as we celebrate the tradition of giving. 

This year, we're creating two of our absolute favorite recipes -- Hot Chocolate Cookies and Pineapple Macadamia Nut Snowball Cookies.
