    Shannon Cooks's Note:

    Enjoy a sweet and sultry variation on the standard (yet always fantastic) white chocolate chip/macadamia nut cookie. People will go nuts for these! White chocolate chips aren’t really available here in the United Kingdom so I chopped up some good quality Cadbury’s white chocolate instead. Back at home in the States it was always so easy to find a bag of white chocolate chips in pretty much any grocery store, but not here! And if you can’t find a key lime, use a regular lime. No big deal. Enjoy!

      Wonderful!I left out the nuts and coconut, because I made the recipe for a work event and wanted to eliminate the allergens. I LOVE these cookies! They are so fresh and light! I also made a version using orange rind, 2tsp orange floavoring and dark chocolate chips. YUMM!!!!

      I have to lock these up from my family. I ended up using 1/2 macadamia and 1/2 pine nuts because I didn't have enough macadamia. These are a huge hit with my family.
