Although pecans or almonds are delicious additions to these cookies, there really is no substitute for the mild, buttery taste of macadamias. They usually cost a little more, but we think they're worth it.
- 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups coconut
- 1 1/2 cups chopped macadamia nuts, pecans, or almonds
In a mixing bowl, beat the butter or margarine with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the sugar and baking soda; beat till combined. Beat in the eggs, sour cream and vanilla. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour with a wooden spoon. Stir in the coconut and nuts.
Drop the dough by rounded teaspoons, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F oven for about 10-12 minutes, or till golden brown. Remove cookies and cool on wire racks.
