I refrigerated the dough for 24 hours and it is still a big sticky mess. No way it can be cut. It's very liquid.
The cookies spread out in a thin sheet that covered my whole cookie sheet. In spite of being so thin it took forever to even begin to get done. I like soft cookies so usually will go a little under the time. I added about 8 minutes as it was still batter at 10 minutes). I measured everything precisely. Lots of times I guess on salt or vanilla but I actually used a measuring spoon as this was a first time recipe for me.
If anything I was expecting my batter to be dry as my eggs were very small. I did not melt the shortening or do anything like that.
I thought the taste was just okay. One thing that may have hurt - I chopped my nuts in the food processor so they were in mostly small pieces. I put in more than 1/2 c. also. None of this should have made it thin. I couldn't really taste the macadamian nuts at all unless I came across a big piece.
I think next time I'd use a tried and true oatmeal cookie recipe and just add the nuts to it.
