  1. 1.
    Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. 2.
    In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. 3.
    Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. 4.
    In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, mixing until just combined.
  5. 5.
    Fold in the chocolate chips, crushed pineapple, and chopped peanuts until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  6. 6.
    Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop rounded portions of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart.

    Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Chocolate chips — Use high-quality chocolate chips for the best flavor and texture.
  • Crushed pineapple — Make sure to drain the pineapple well to avoid excess moisture in the cookie dough.
  • Roasted peanuts — If you prefer a stronger peanut flavor, you can lightly toast the peanuts before chopping them.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a more pronounced Taiwanese flavor, you can add a pinch of ground black sesame seeds to the cookie dough.
  • If you prefer a softer texture, slightly underbake the cookies and allow them to cool completely on the baking sheet before transferring.
  • Experiment with different types of chocolate chips, such as dark chocolate or white chocolate, to customize the flavor of your cookies.
  • To make the cookies extra indulgent, sprinkle a pinch of sea salt on top of each cookie before baking.
  • Store the cookies in an airtight container to maintain their freshness and crunchiness.
