I really hate making cookies. It’s like when I make them they have to be eaten. In mass quantities. Because when I make cookies I don’t just make a couple. I make a couple dozen. And they just beg to be eaten. These toasted coconut white chocolate macadamia cookies? It’s like they were calling my name and asking me to put them out of their misery. In my mouth.
And I totally lied. I love making cookies. I just lack the willpower to not eat 6 of them during the day. And that doesn’t include the half a pound of cookie dough before they were baked. Cookie dough is my weakness and since I love it so much I pretend it doesn’t have calories. [Makes sense, right?].
Cookies are also great for attracting kids over to you. As soon as I turn on my mixer Ryley is asking if she can help and/or lick the spoon. After they bake it’s hard to keep little fingers away from the warm cookies. Heck, it’s hard for ME to keep my big fingers away.
But I did the responsible thing and bagged up more then half of these cookies and brought them to church. The recipe makes almost 5 dozen so there were plenty of cookies for everyone. [Im sure there would have been more if Ryley and I hadn’t gotten to the dough first. Oops.]
So this is your cookie warning – unless you have a few people to share these toasted coconut white chocolate macadamia cookies with, half the recipe. If you just like cookies [or the dough] don’t half them. Ryley and I promise we won’t tell. We swear on our licked clean spatulas.
