Hawaiian cookies: These are boxed for travel and gift-giving, and a variety of locally made cookies makes a good office peace offering. A good example: pineapple-shaped Honolulu Cookie Co. treats, individually wrapped to keep fresh. The mac-nut shortbreads come dipped in chocolate or with a bit of dried tropical fruit or a coffee bean tucked in like a little belly button. Shops are in Ward Warehouse, Ala Moana Center and the Hilton Hawaiian Village.
