Recipe by JamesDeansGirl

Found this on a Christmas baking site; sounds yummy! Instead of the macadamia nuts, you could add a sprinkle of chocolate chips, toffee bits, raisins, or dried cranberries.

I just made these with the following modifications: 3 tsp pumpkin pie spice 3/4 cup Libby canned pumpkin 1/2 cup Nestle Semi-Sweet Choc Chips Egg wash I found it best to get in there with your hands and work the dough. The egg wash gives the log a nice shine and the chocolate chips add a needed sweetness. We enjoyed them and I will keep playing with the recipe until I find that perfect mix for our taste buds :-) We're off to a great start..thanks for the recipe!!
