I was just sitting at home the other day and was craving cookies. I wanted to bake them and I wanted to eat them! I have always loved white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, but honestly, I could always do without the nuts. So, I found a delicious recipe for white chocolate macadamia nut cookies and I just left out the nuts. They were so good! I ate 6 cookies in one day!
