These cookies were excellent SusieQusie. We enjoyed them very much. They were soft, moist, chewy and had a delicious flavor. I didn't use the macadamian nuts as my dh is allergic to nuts. I can't wait to try them again, this time with the nuts, just for me. Thanks so much for sharing.

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!!!

Very good cookie! Not as sweet as I thought, which is great! The dough was too moist for me to roll into balls and dip into the coconut, so I spooned the dough onto the pan, and placed pinches of coconut on top! Thanks for the great recipie!!
