White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies


I was served white chocolate macadamia nut cookies at a restaurant in Springfield, MO, during a business conference. Went home and made up this recipe which has been a hit at any church gathering I take them to. They're even better than the one I had at the conference.
