Thats what I love about your recipes, Paula...its that there is some chocolate, but not every dang thing is wrapped around chocolate. I am the butter and sugar kind of sweet tooth, I'm more likely to grab a couple madelines than grab a chocolate chip cookie, so to me, there is actually a thing called too much chocolate! These cookies are totally up my alley! Thanks for offering such a wide variety of goodies!

Hi Paula, I am a huge fan and since you had baseball player Albert Pujols and his wife on your show my husband is a fan also!! For the White Chocolate Cherry Chunky cookies, what butter do you use, salted or unsalted? Thank you! Janet

These are the best tasting cookies ever Paula! I saved the recipe from your magazine a couple years ago,and since then Ive subsituted pecans recently due to the Macadamia nuts being so expensive(the guys @my husband's job loved them)...but I think the cookie taste better with the Macadamia nut in the recipe. Thanks so much for sharing a part of your kitchen!

My kids (and the adults) attacked these things at thanksgiving! When I was making the batter, it seemed really thick and I thought they were going to come out dry but they were just right! Thank you so much for this website, because of your recipes, my first Thanksgiving dinner was amazing! (I actually outcooked some of the more "experienced" women in my family!)

I can only find macadamia nuts that are roasted and salted. Is this ok?
