    Recipe yield 4 dozen cookies


    * 1/2 cup butter
    * 3/4 cup white sugar
    * 1 egg
    * 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    * 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    * 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt
    * 8 ounces white chocolate, chopped
    * 1 (6.5 ounce) jar macadamia nuts, chopped


    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
    2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt, stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, stir in the white chocolate and nuts. Drop cookies by heaping teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.
    3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks. When cool, store in an airtight container.

    "did you know that macadamias are native to Queensland in Australia?"

    Yes and botanist Alan Cunningham discovered them. Did you know I'm still waiting for you to ship me a case of them? : )

    By the way, I googled the recipe so don't blame me if the cookies suck, lol
    Not funny Colleen it is near my meal time and you have made me hungrier than a horse. I am going to make these, did you know (how silly of me, you know everything) that macadamias are native to Queensland in Australia? There is a area just north of where I live where they grow wild. The town is named Bauple (bop--l) and the nuts are called Bauple nuts. The original English name was Queensland nut but it did not take off. History has it that a missionary took seedlings to Hawaii as a crop for the natives to grow. The name macadamia was introduced and the rest as they say is history. More useless stuff sent for no reason except to "talk" to you.xx
