Mmmmmm, these are so good! I had a heck of a time finding macadamia nuts, and when I did, it was a 3 oz. pkg. for $5, so I bought a pound of pistachios instead. Their greenish hue looked very pretty with the cranberries! Not the same crunch as a macadamia, but was a fine substitute. I made these today for a cookie swap. Doubled the recipie thinking I would get 6 dozen, but got more like 9 dozen! This was a good thing, because they are very addictive! My hubby commented several times how good he thought they were! I dusted some with powdered sugar and the rest got a drizzle of semi-sweet chocolate! They were as pretty as they were delicious! I found the batter to be very stiff when I doubled it and it certainly gave my Kitchen Aid mixer a good work out! If I double it next time, I may do two seperate batches. I also would like to try the cocoa powder version, I bet these would be killer in chocolate with a white chocolate drizzle! Overall a great cookie recipie, I highly recommend giving them a try! :-)
