Well...These were a good cookie. However, I had to make 2 batches. The 1st batch followed it to a T and my cookies were slightly flat and needed a little something, but couldn't put my finger on it. Went back and looked at some other reviews and made the 2nd batch. I took the white sugar decreased it to 1 1/2 cups and added 1/2 brown sugar. I increased the vanilla extract to 1 1/2 tsp, increased the flour to 3 cups and used 12 oz white chips(works out to 1 3/4 cup--one bag) and 6 oz Macadamia baking pieces dry roasted. I didn't see the need to measure out 4 oz---I like nuts so I used the whole bag. With these adjustments, I got a nice flavorful cookie as I think was intended, and still slightly soft in the middle...I have a gas oven so 8 1/2 to 9 minutes was just perfect. Even though the first batch was decent, the 2nd batch was excellent..I couldn't rate this a bad recipe at all just some minor help. Will make this again with the adjustments.


My family really enjoyed these cookies. I was a little disappointed only because they flatten out so much.
