White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

The man loves the macadamia white chocolate cookies from Subway. So, when the man likes, the man asks, so the wife tries to experiment.

Here's the recipe I tried, and I love how chewy it was, and this bake got the thumbs up not only from the two male in the family, but also my colleagues!

- My cookies came out slightly salty because I chopped the macadamia nuts too finely. Hence, you can choose to omit the salt for this case.
- White chocolate on its own is already very sweet. If you don't fancy your cookies overbearingly sweet, reduce the amount of sugar used.
- For a more chewy texture, bake till it is only slightly brown.

A very simple recipe which can be done without a mixer. Something to try this weekend maybe?
