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.

Made these for my other half to take to work & share ~ The slight taste of the coffee (or was it just knowing it was in there?) was much more appreciated there than here, since the 8 people there devoured these in no time! Word is they really enjoyed the macadamia nuts as a welcome change from the usual walnuts or almonds! Thanks for the nice treat, BK!

Took these to the DS's music recreation group were they were enjoyed. I got 16 out of the batch (forgot a metric tablespoon is bigger than imperial) and they were huge measuring 12cm (4 3/4"). Baked 165C in a fan forced oven for 14 minutes. I did double the nuts to ensure that some went into every cookie/biscuit and would consider lightly crushing them to get a better distribution through the mix. Thank you Baby Kato, made for Aussie Swap #18 July 2008.
