Do you like macadamia nuts, coffee and chocolate...you will love these cookies. This recipe makes big, soft chewy cookies, that harden a little as they cool.

These cookies turned out absolutely outstanding!!! I think, due to my changes, they didn't quite turn out like intended, but smell, texture and flavour are 10 stars for my tastebuds! First of all I used gluten free flour, which shouldn't have affected the texture too much. But then I realised that I was run out of margarine, so I had to use shortening instead of butter. That, I suppose, made most of the difference. I melted the shortening and mixed in the chocolate, which was very dark chocolate, then slowly poured and whisked the mix into the eggs which I had beaten with the sugar / rice syrup I used. After adding the flour, I had a fudgy glop. Heavenly smell and good to work with, but very funny texture! Then I first panicked because the cookies refused to spread, so I flattened them while baking... All in all a very hilarious performance with an outstanding result :lol: Thanks a ton for posting this, I'll for sure make these cookies again!!! Made for Comfort Cafe Snowqueen's Round 2010.
