Cookie Friday: Macadamia nut cookies
Hello, everyone! It's Friday, and I think we should celebrate by breaking out the cookies!
My hubby came home from work the other day and said he had a craving for macadamia nut cookies. Well, I didn't have all the ingredients to make them right away, but after a weekend grocery trip, I was ready to start baking. (I got these TJ's macadamia nuts from a Minneapolis shopping trip.)
Found this macadamia nut cookie recipe on AllRecipes.com. The recipe calls for white chocolate, but I was feeling cheap and bought Tollhouse vanilla chips. Just as delicious.
Unfortunately, our A/C is still out. I tried to wait until the evening when the house cooled off to bake, but it was still steaming in the kitchen. So these all-butter cookies were spreading on the pan. I must have undercooked the first batch, because they stuck to the silicone mat.
I used the '70s era plates from my childhood to pretty up the pic. Nice!
My baking days will probably be over for a while until my house cools off. That just gives me an excuse to buy ice cream!
