These were delicious. I left out the macadamia nuts, because I forgot to buy them. Since its only me, I just cooked a few of them, and froze the rest of the dough in balls. (They freeze & cookie excellently) I mixed by hand, and found the dough to be extremely sticky. I had to cover it in coconut to manage to make it into balls. I'm not sure if I did something wrong and thats why. But they were delicious anyway!!!
These lovely *Paradise Cookies* are aptly named. I made a full recipe that yielded 48 cookies & made 1 chg out of need vs choice. Macadamia nuts were either not on the shelf or labeled w/an Icelandic word I had no hope of deciphering, so I subbed slivered almonds. The cookies were done in 12 min in my convection oven & were as you described ... soft & buttery w/all the other flavors nicely present. The recipe uses no milk or egg, so is a way for cooks dealing w/egg allergies or lactose-intolerant issues to give their family a yummy sweet treat. Loved them SQ! Thx for sharing the recipe w/us.
