Tuxedo Macadamia Cookies

When I lived in Savannah I was known as the “Cookie Lady” because cookies where my thing, now that I live in Pensacola, it seems cakes and cupcakes are my thing! lol  No matter what I bake, or where I bake, it’s always fun to make something from my kitchen to share with others!   I hope to inspire some of you to begin your own baking traditions to share with your loved ones and friends, you never know, you just might be the next cookie or cake lady!

Here is a recipe for macadamia nut cookies that I think will be a part of your cookie recipe collection.  I’ve made these over and over again and love them each and every time I make them.  they are called Tuxedo Macadamia Cookies.  They get their name from using white baking chips and chocolate baking chips mixed together with the macadamia nuts in one cookies.  I hope you enjoy this cookie as much as I do!

Happy Cookie Baking!
