      This is a fairly adaptable recipe. I used almonds instead of macadamias and almond extract instead of vanilla. (Brazil nuts work well too, and add nice little dark flecks to the cookie.) I also omitted the nutmeg. The cookie dough is very similar to that for peanut butter cookies, and the flavor of the finished product is excellent. I chopped the cranberries before mixing them into the dough; they add a wonderful tanginess to the cookie. You could also make a nice glaze for the cookies with 1 c. powdered sugar and 2 tbls. cranberry juice. Drizzle it over the cookies after they've cooled, and the glaze will add another dimension.

      These have a great flavor from the nutmeg. They are crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. I was a little worried while making these because the dough was a little dry but they came out fine.
