These cookies turned out GREAT! The only thing I changed was that I used 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract.

I have no idea what I did wrong because I followed the directions perfectly and have never had difficulty with a cookie recipe before. The cookies spread a lot and burned by the time they had baked only 9 minutes (recipe calls for 12).

The cookies are delicious & easy. However, I could not add all the chips & nuts to this little bit of dough. I have already made a note on my recipe card to double the dough for the amount of nuts & chips. I got 2 dozen cookies - 2-2 1/2" in diameter.

My favorite thing to make is cookies and this recipe in going in my "bake to impress your friends" stack. I took the suggestion to use the almond extract and it was great. I did not grease the cookie as suggested and they came off easily and did not spread out. Thanks!

Very good! I substituted the chocolate chips for white chocolate chips.

This is one of those recipes - that when you find it - you never have to look for another recipe of this type again. Simple, quick, and delicious. I have made these cookies again and again and I ALWAYS get compliments. I would reccomend this recipe to anyone.

these cookies are fabulous!! i only made a few simple modifications: omitting the salt since my macadamias were salted, substituting half of the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour & using ghirardelli's double chocolate (bittersweet) chips. this recipe yielded 2 1/2 dozen cookies. many thanks bev!

I made one batch and it was so good that I immediately made another. I sent them with my father-in-law to take to his bridge club. He said the ladies said I should open a cookie shop!I did use milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet. Thank you for this recipe Bev. Angela
