"Here is a recipe for some very good cookies. These cookies were once described as 'better than sex' by a platonic female friend."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

2 1/2 cups
1 2/3 cups
vanilla baking chips
macadamia nuts, chopped
Well...These were a good cookie. However, I had to make 2 batches. The 1st batch followed it to a T and my cookies were slightly flat and needed a little something, but couldn't put my finger on it. Went back and looked at some other reviews and made the 2nd batch. I took the white sugar decreased it to 1 1/2 cups and added 1/2 brown sugar. I increased the vanilla extract to 1 1/2 tsp, increased the flour to 3 cups and used 12 oz white chips(works out to 1 3/4 cup--one bag) and 6 oz Macadamia baking pieces dry roasted. I didn't see the need to measure out 4 oz---I like nuts so I used the whole bag. With these adjustments, I got a nice flavorful cookie as I think was intended, and still slightly soft in the middle...I have a gas oven so 8 1/2 to 9 minutes was just perfect. Even though the first batch was decent, the 2nd batch was excellent..I couldn't rate this a bad recipe at all just some minor help. Will make this again with the adjustments.
These are basically sugar cookies with white chocolate and nuts. I will stick to my original white chocolate macadamia nut cookies. Need to add brown sugar to these
My family really enjoyed these cookies. I was a little disappointed only because they flatten out so much.
This is the tastiest basic cookie recipe I have found. You can add a variety of ingredients to this to make different cookies for ex. choc. chips, nuts, dried fruits, or just sprinkle with colored sugar. You can follow this recipe exactly as it is, no improvements necessary. You won't be disappointed!
very very good cookie....so what if they flatten out, just make your little cookie ball taller instead of flatter before you stick them in the oven...not hard
Cookies are good...not as good as sex but good. If you chill dough before cooking they don't become as thin as if you don't. Also they need to be cooked for 10 minutes not 9 minutes. Thanks
Easy, simple, and with ingredients I can keep on hand at all times. I will make this again, but I tweaked the first batch a bit. I ran out of vanilla extract so I used almond instead and I only had 2 oz of nuts. So the next time I make this, I will do it the right way!! When pulling the cookies out of the oven, it's important to let them cool for about a min or so because they are so gooey in the center. But when they cool, they firm up and are sooo yummy and chewy!
Easy cookie to make, liked the consistency although I felt like they were missing a little something. The taste was just a little on the bland side. The look and presentation was good, I did not find they were too flat like other reviewers had mentioned. I also froze individual dough balls to use at a later date.
