Very good. I did omit the almond flavoring because I do not like the taste of almond flavoring so for the reviewers who said "do not leave it out" that would certainly depend on knowing your own taste. If I was making the cookies for someone that I knew liked almond flavoring then I would add it. This is when you first read a recipe and see a lot of or not so much spicy flavorings, adjust to your preference rather make the recipe and than criticize. For those who thought their cookies were too puffy, you might try cutting back the baking soda, 1 teaspoon is a little more than you would normally find in relation to the amount of flour. Also, if you melt the butter just until it starts to brown, add the brown sugar, wisk and let it sit for 2 or 3 minutes to dissolve the sugar, you will get a different consistency than if you cream the butter and sugar, however this is not to everyone's liking. Try it and if you do not like it, go back to the original way. For those who complain about the cost of the macadamia nuts, this is what trying new recipes is all about and at least on this site you have the benefit of the comments of others who have made the recipe whether you agree or not.
