    Loved these cookies! DH tells me that these are the best. These taste just like the cookies from the bakery in town. I did change one thing just out of preference. I used half shortening and half butter.

    I made a half batch of these last week and absolutely loved them. The cookie is so buttery and flavorful and matches very well with the chips and nuts. I have a tempermental oven and found that I had to bake the cookies at 350 degrees to avoid too-done edges and not-done-enough centers. Thanks for a great recipe!

    I am the buy cookie dough kind of person, but thought I would give making some from scratch a try. I thought I might have gotten ahead of myself with Macadamia Nut Cookies (my favorite) but this was so easy to make and they came out DELISH!!!!

    Excellent cookie. I made the first batch on the large side, and they flowed together. After that I made sure to stick to the heaping teaspoon and it worked great. I also only baked for 8 minutes. Thanks for the recipe.

    very good, i used 1/4 cup water and 1 tbs of baking powder for replacing the eggs since im vegan, and instead of white chocolate, i used regular chocolate. it was so good :)

    I happen to be partial to brazil nuts instead of macadamia nuts. The chopped brazil nuts go perfectly with white chocolate in this type cookie.


I was one of the original members of Recipezaar that was truly a community of individuals that enjoyed each other in forums and chat rooms. I've been a member of this site since 2003. Made some tremendous friends that I still think of often. I'll continue coming here because my recipes are here and so many more that I tried over the years as a member. It's just a tad boring now and just another recipe site like all the rest. Sad.
