Be sure to chop the macadamia nuts into big chunks. I liked them better when they had completely cooled.

These are the best cookies ever! I didn't change a thing.

Added white chocolate chips - the shortening makes this a heavy cookie. Overall after they cooled they taste great!

yummy, I'm a cookie fanatic and always look for great recipes to enjoy on rainy days. these are amazingly delicious. Make sure you have a glass of milk to enjoy these cookies with.
