Whole Wheat White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

I made these a week ago. I am trying to get caught up with posting recipes. Trey’s friend was having surgery and mentioned he liked White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies. I decided to make some for him but a little healthier.

These turned out great!

I placed sheets of wax paper in between each cookie to make sure they didn’t stick to one another.

Then I wrapped the box in plastic wrap to keep the air out. They traveled well in the car and made it to Mobile in one piece!

Now I have to get back to baking some more cookies. This time they are for the cookie swap. I hope they turn out good. If not I will be up all night trying new recipes. My plan is to ship them out in the morning!
