I know I have missed the last couple of days of posting, but that doesn’t mean I have not been baking! This holiday weekend started early for me with trips to places like Williamsburg and the winery over there, Virginia Beach to meet up with friends, and a good old fashioned block party on our own street. I am still going to put the proper dates on these next couple of posts though as I catch back up so I can be sure I’m hitting all the numbers properly!
30D30B continued on day 13 with a batch of Macadamia Nut Cookies. I have mentioned more than once that I don’t really care for nuts, but I feel like I am supposed to be covering all of my bases while I do this whole baking challenge. Just as in at least one previous post, I have forced myself to try the cookies with the nuts in them and actually liked them a lot! The taste of these cookies was absolutely phenomenal. I didn’t realize how I guess, sweet? macadamia nuts were. Or there is something else that separates them from other nuts. That must be the same thing that makes them cost twice as much too!!!
It is at this point I must say I will probably not make this recipe again. You guys know how I like my cookies, right? Soft, chewy, fluffy, cake-like goodness. These cookies were NOT them. Warm out of the oven they were…WOW! In less than five minutes they were crazy crunchy. Luckily we had a friend over who likes her cookies that way and they took several bags! So, if you like crunchy cookies, these are definitely for you. I, however, will still be on a search for the right macadamia nut cookie recipe!
