Chewy Chocolate Chips Cookies w/ Macadamia Nuts

Okay..I was supposed to "close" my kitchen until further notice due to a strain on my wrist.I won't go into details about it here. The reason I "reopened" was for my dear friend aka baking lover.She is hosting this month (OCT) Aspiring Bakers.So tell me, how can I not show my support. ;)

I have been using this recipe for quite awhile. After trying a few recipes, this is still my favourite. If you have not try it, go gather the ingredients and make the cookies now. ;)
I enjoy sharing good and successful recipes so that my readers do not waste ingredients and time. Many recipes I shared are very versatile and I do "play" around with them; colours/shapes/flavours, etc.Many asked me if I have blog entries for them and I will refer them to the original recipe. Sorry ladies and gentlemen, most of the time I do not blog about the same recipe.1stly I dont have the time, 2ndly, I find it redundant sometimes to keep repeating with little changes. So do be creative or feel free to ask me how I do it or what can be done. :)
This entry is one of the rare exceptions that I am repeating a recipe, as mentioned earlier this is created to mainly show my support to my dear. ;)
Anyway, for this batch of cookies I added macadamia nuts.I did some research on it and found out that its also called Queen of Nuts,now I know why it has a higher price tag. It has this buttery taste and it adds extra crunch to the cookie. Though I am not a nut person(obviously  >○<) I quite like it!
Now for the recipe. :)

  • 192g plain flour
