Macadamia and white chocolate cookies
been making this recipe for 15 years. She liked the fact that when she started
using macadamias, the only Australian flora that was grown
commercially was the macadamia nut.
This batch of
cookies from the Thermomix were the best ever. Soft speed provided complete
mixing but left the white chocolate melts intact. The cookies taste so good it's
almost decadent to eat them.
