Oatmeal Coconut White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Yes I know the name of these is long. But trust me, you want to try them. Right. Now. These have all the best parts of every kind of cookie wrapped into one. I made one mistake when making them that made these not quite as good as they could have been--I had salted macadamia nuts, but also included the entire amount of salt asked for in the recipe. My suggestion is if you used salted macadamias is to at least halve the salt in the recipe. Overall a 4/5 for cookies!

Drop by the rounded tablespoon onto a cookie sheet and bake for 10 – 12 minutes. I bake mine for 10. Let cool on sheet for at least 4 minutes and then transfer to a rack.
