Chocolate Macadamia Cookie Recipe

Updated on January 7, 2012

Is your favorite all time cookie Chocolate Chip? Oatmeal Rasin? Maybe even Sugar? Well for a really long time in my life I thought my favorite cookie in the whole wide world was Chocolate Chip. That was until I found this recipe in one of my mom’s really old cookbooks. I stumbled across it and decided to try it one day and put it on my Christmas trays that I send out every year. Once I tried this recipe I immediately fell in love! It was so buttery and sugary that I just had to continue making them! This recipe has everything I want in a cookie. A little bit of a nut, chocolate, and the sugar butter taste! After my family tried it and also fell in love a new I had hit a jackpot when I tried out this recipe. I could not believe all my life my mom or grandmother had never baked these for me. Chocolate Macadamia Cookies are just so soft and sweet, I didn't understand how I lived a big part of my life without these! Anyone who is into baking, cooking, or tasting and trying new sweets should defiantly give this one a GO. Have you always been into baking like me? Is your passion to bake? A way to express your art? Or do you just love trying new things? Whichever on you are if any I know that you will fall in love like me, and I am not a big fan of cookies, it has to be really great for me to continue eating them and continuing to bake as well. This cookie recipe is so fast and easy that you will want to make these time and time again. My idea was to use a certain type of M&Ms. If Valentine’s Day was coming up go to your local grocery story and pick up Valentine Day colored M&Ms and give them to that special someone in your life. When a birthday party comes around just use the colorful M&Ms and give them out as a party treat or make a whole bunch put them on a tray and you then have a gift! For Christmas Trays and baskets use the red and green, they look so cute! The color of the candies spreads around the cookies giving it an even cooler affect. If you need a last minute gift or something to take to a party I suggest using this recipe it only takes about 15 to 20 minutes to complete its great! Simple and EASY and who doesn't want that:) Just try it out and let me know how it turns out. Thanks for reading! Enjoy your Chocolate Macadamia Cookies they are wonderful.
