Mommys Macadamia Mmmmm Cookies

My husband wanted a cookie that had a toasted nut flavor without any chocolate or white chocolate. This is the same base as my chocolate chip cookie recipe. The add-ins are the only difference.
I tried using different extracts, pineapple juice, fresh pineapple, they all flavored the batter so the richness was lost.
