Next, In a medium size bowl place flour, baking soad and salt. whisk together and set aside. In a large bowl or kitchen aid mix the butter and sugars into a grainy paste. make sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add eggs and vanilla and mix at medium speed until light and fluff. Now, add flour mix, shredded coconut and macadamian nuts and fold together until just combined.
Make sure not ot overmix! you can try differnt methods but for this recipe we will do a drop cookie method.
Using a rounded tablespoon, drop portions one by one on an ungreased cookie sheet tray, about 1-2 inches apart. bake for 20-25 mintues or until golden brown. Use a spatula to transfer cookies to cool surface.
*optional these are great drizzled with caramel or chocolate
As far as a holiday tradition or experience goes I can just say this- Holidays at my house are ones never to miss! Its a whole lot of stand up, call outs and UNO! That's right after dinner the family sits down for a serious UNO game! Not like any other! It's by far as intense as any poker game I've played but the stakes are higher with UNO. Wine- Great Food- and UNO!
My familes tradition for the holidays! hahahahahahaha
Hey thanks and hope you enjoy the recipe and have a very safe holiday!
lots of love!
