Macadamia and white chocolate cookies



Joy has 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.



This recipe is from 'As American as Apple Pie' (1990) p.163 and has been modified and made in the Thermomix by Joy but specific Thermomix instructions have not yet been prepared
