Macadamia Nut Cookies

This has been a family favorite over the past years.
I got this from a friend who said "they never fail."
These cookies come skiing, camping and
now the little boys are becoming more adventuresome and
help in making double batches.
They never stick around long enough.

2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 C. Sugar
1 C. brown sugar
1 C. margarine
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp. baking soda
11/2 C. oatmeal
2 C flour
1 C. white chocolate chips
1 C. Macadamia Nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Like usual
Mix the eggs, sugars, vanilla, and margarine together.
Add the salt, baking soda and mix well.
Add dry ingredients.
I use a smalll ice-cream scoop to put them on the pan.
Bake for 12 minutes. Exacto!
Do not flatten them.
When they come out of the oven,
let the pan drop on the counter or stove top.
(This procedure flattens them out naturally)
Hopefully they will be softer rather than crunchy.
I learned this trick about "slapping" a few years back from
my daughters who learned this at University.
Which course?
The course of living in dorms.

Get those little guys to help you.
Give them assistance with a motor and
you'll be surprised about productivity.

Call it a store or whatever.
Invite your parents/grandparents over and have coffee and cookies.
What better way to help build self esteem
in the lives of these little people!


  1. YUM! These sound delightful! Hubby and I are big fans of macadamias from living in Hawaii.

  2. Hey....just in time. It is one of those grocery weekends where I need to look to my pantry instead of the what do I have? White choco chips and all the ingredients but the mac. nuts. I think I can spring for those! Thx.

  3. And if you don't have white chocolate, you substitute the regular choclate chips...right? I'm just wondering what the dark spots are in the cookies.

    I love macadamia nuts...and these look yummy.

  4. Yea, that is a problem about the Mac Nuts.
    I just finished using my last ones. I need to go back and purchase some more in Hawaii...They are fresh from the farm and I freeze a whole bunch of them...Maybe I should take orders???

  5. Marg, they not only look delicious the photos of your help are just so terribly cute. I'd come and buy his cookies if I lived in the neighborhood.

  6. i always thought that macadamia nuts were used in exotic recipes and a killer price. then i saw them at the dollar store, now i have a recipe to try them in thanks marg. i wish i had a little boy to help me bake them. i know i have big boys to help me eat them.;^).

  7. I love macadamia nuts so that makes this cookie a winner! Thanks Marg!
    A tea party with the little ones..what fun!

  8. Those cookies look so good! Great job, boys! :)

  9. I brought one expensice bag of Macadamia nuts from Hawaii and now I wish I'd gone to a farm and bought more. These cookies look delicious!
