caring for peonies that surrounded her back patio.
Her name was Tave and she always kept some of these decadent cookies
in her freezer----white chocolate macadamia. Mmmm.
She liked to take a few out of a pretty little tin before
we watered, weeded and chatted.
By the time we were done, the cookies were ready to devour.
I truly think she looked forward to cookies more than I did!
Not long ago, I happened to pick up some macadamia nuts
at Costco and still had half of a bag left when I remembered
Tave's favorite treats. How hard could it be to whip some of her cookies up?
It turns out they're very easy to make.
The recipe I used made nearly 3 dozen.
2 dozen were immediately popped into the deep freezer for another time.
I found a recipe (and the gorgeous blog, the Noble Pig) thanks to Pinterest
and whipped some up tonight. I tend to make larger cookies than average,
so I did bake ours for 15 minutes at 325,
but that was the only change required for my oven
and they were still soft & moist.
You can find the fabulous Noble Pig Blog & this amazing recipe here.
