Fluffy Coconut Pineapple Drop Biscuits — Sweet Dreams

Happy August everyone- wow July sure flew by fast! But before the rest of summer does too, I want to share with you my recipe for these incredible coconut pineapple drop biscuits! They’re drop-dead delicious, easy to make, and perfect as a sort of end-of-summer, tropical breakfast treat.

As summer is approaching I just had to remind you of these tasty treats which are just perfect for a summer’s day and absolutely melt-in-the-mouth!  They are yummy!

I am sure Arthur Ransome would have loved these tropical treats!  I am sure that the pirates of his beloved fiction would not have turned them down either.

They are very melt-in-the-mouth – but not particularly conducive to campers on Wild Cat Island, that Lake District haven!
