1/1 Photo of Tropical Key Lime White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies
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!
