Blue Ribbon Recipe by

This cookie evolved through a friend that loved macadamia nuts. so, for a surprise at christmas I made these cookies for her, wrapped each one idividually in saran wrap and tied each and every one with christmas ribbon. she was delighted with the gift. This is one of four cookies that I do this with at christmas time, putting some of each kind on the platter or in a basket. It is as much fun for me to do as it is to give. The liquors give them a little extra something. I hope you enjoy them as much as Ann- Harrison does.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These cookies would be great for a "throw down" with Mrs. Fields! They're extra sweet - thanks to the yummy added ingredients. We can't wait to try them with semi-sweet chocolate chips too!

How To Make ann harrison cookies

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Using an electric mixer, beat butter, both sugars, vanilla extract, Frangelico and Royale Cream Kahlua in a large bowl until light and fluffy. add eggs and mix well.
  • 2
    Mix flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Stir into butter mixture. Mix in chocolate chips and macadamia nuts. (Do this slowly or by hand)
  • 3
    Drop by 1/4 cupfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet, spacing well apart. Bake until cookies are golden brown (approx. 16 minutes.) I usually turn the cookie sheet around after about 8 minutes to give the cookies a chance to brown evenly.
  • 4
    cool on cookie sheet for one minute, then remove to wire rack to finish cooling. Makes approximately 3 dozen cookies.
