White Chocolate Madacamia Nut Cookies: Day 4 of 12 Days of Christmas Cookies

Today's cookie was picked especially for my mom. My mom was really good this year: she lost a lot of weight and restrained from eating sweets and cookies and such. Now she's off the diet and back to eating normally I wanted to put something in my Christmas Cookies that she would absolutely love.

My mom's favourite chocolate is white chocolate and her favourite nuts are macadamia nuts, so I went, googled and found the perfect cookie over at My Tasty Treasures.

Again: another easy to make, scoop & bake cookie. I baked them for 12 minutes and got 54 cookies out of this recipe. My mom got to test them and said that they were the 'bestest' cookies she ever had!
