Macadamia Oatmeal Cookies

Macadamia nuts taste rich, and buttery, they are great in cookies.

The  buttery macadamia nuts,  the chewy oats, the addition of cinnamon and juicy raisins, made these macadamia oatmeal cookies a pure pleasure.

This  dough recipe produces a perfect cookie.  Incredibly soft and  very chewy.

That recipe calls for baking soda rather than baking powder.  Here’s something helpful to remember: substituting baking powder for baking soda, makes a cookie rise and stay puffy after baking.  Meaning, they do not “sink” when taken out of the oven.

I love cookies with texture and chunks! These macadamia oatmeal cookies are a favorite.
