Recipe Comments & Reviews

I made these today. I used walnuts as I didn't have macadamia nuts. These are really good cookies, but beware - they are very sweet. I wonder if the amount of sugar could be cut down. Still, they are amazing.
THE BEST, and I mean Best!! cookie I've made or tasted and I cook a lot and am picky as can be. So easy, but the flavor and the delicate crispness are incredible. We can't leave these alone til they're gone!!!
