READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Morning Biscotti

I just tried this recipe from Cooking Light. This is one of my favourite cookies, Yumm. The macadamia butter makes it really rich and delicious. I chilled the dough in the freezer for 10 minutes before baking

Wow! These cookies were really good, especially hot out of the oven! I was looking for a recipe to use up some of the craisins I had on had and this was excellent. They didn't last long in my house though.
