Making these cookies reminded me of my times in Hawaii and eating macadamia nuts. I enjoy the taste of these nuts in many different recipes…cookies, sushi, on tilapia, chicken…variety of  food! It adds such a  nice crunch and nuttty taste to these foods. This is a super simple recipe to make! If you have all the ingredients and have 30 minutes, you got this! =D
