Cookies, Cookies and More Macadamia Nut Cookies
My all time favorite of the bunch, I try not to make too many of these when I'm home alone, or I would be in some serious trouble, they are so good and quite irresistible.
Surprisingly people that say they don’t like macadamia nuts, try my cookies and I still get a mmmm, and I always walk away with an accomplished smile for converting yet another.
