Sweet Melissa Sundays – Chocolate Chip Cookies with Toasted Macadamia Nuts

by Jessica on June 14, 2009

This week’s SMS pick was chosen by THE Melissa Murphy!! Because I was a nerd and didn’t check the pantry before I started baking, I ended up using macadamia nuts (yummy!). I’m sure the toasted almonds make these cookies outstanding, but the macadamia nuts took these over the top… sweet, but with that little hint of salt. SO delicious!! 🙂

Melissa graciously posted the recipe on SMS’s home page, so check it out! And don’t forget to take a look at all the other fabulous cookies here!

Ooh, I bet the macadamia nuts were delicious. I wish I had used salted nuts, I thought the cookies needed a little more flavor. They were tasty, just not my favorite ccc.

These look like perfect chocolate chip cookies, and macadamias would make them even more special. Nice job!

Macadamia nuts sound so yummy! What a great improvision…I was surprised at how different almonds taste after baking them in the oven. A pleasant surprise but now, because I love macadamia nuts, I want to try the recipe again!

Your cookies look great! Nice and thick! I wish mine were thick like that.

They look de-lish! I’d take any nut in cookies!

Hi Jessica!

Love how your cookies came out- it’s too funny how the exact same recipe can come out looking so different from baker to baker. Yours look deliciously thick and chewy, while mine had a bit more spread. Either way, I’m glad they both tasted great! Thanks for stopping by my site, and I hope to talk to you again after next weekend’s recipe!

I bet milk chocolate and toasted macadamia nuts would be so good in that cookie! And I love your potstickers from the DC challenge. Really beautiful!


18 Tracey June 15, 2009 at 11:29 pm

Oh wow, love your cookies! They look so deliciously thick and chewy! I loved these cookies – definitely a new favorite 🙂


19 Melissa June 16, 2009 at 11:09 pm

These look absolutely delicious! I’ve looked at everyone else’s Chocolate Chip cookie with Toasted Almonds, and they all look rather flat.

Do you know how yours ended up thicker and not spread much?

These sound amazing, I love macadamia nuts.
