White chocolate macadamia nut cookies

My recipe is a little different as I use one I found on allrecipes.com. Grumpy likes his cookies not crunchy. He likes them soft and chewy. These aren’t really chewy, but they are soft. They are pretty darn good too as I am having a hard time leaving them alone…..although I have been good and only have eaten one today. I won’t tell you how many I ate yesterday though…..Up close photo of White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies
