Peanut Butter Macadamia Nut White Chocolate Cookies


I went for groceries and saw the macadamia nuts and decided I wanted to make a cookie with them. In looking for a recipe ... thinking peanut butter would be good and white chocolate.
On Peter Pans page this recipe was the one I chose. These cookies are so good...I will make them again. I may even add oatmeal ground up next time.
