Orange Macadamia Nut Cookies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by cookiedog

A classic combination of Macadamia Nuts and White Chocolate kissed with Orange. From Christmas with Southern Living 2000. No need to wait for Christmas though, with a cold glass of milk or some tea, they are good anytime. Please allow 2 hours for dough to chill in the refrigerator

Top Review by San Antonio Chef

I made these cookies last night to give away in holiday gift baskets and they are soooo good. I should have added a little more than 1/4 of a teaspoon of the orange extract for a bit more of an orange flavor, but nonetheless the are still very good. Thanks for sharing your recipe!!
