Chocolate Brownie Cookies with White Chocolate and Roasted Macadamia Nuts

I can't believe  how fast time passes. The days are getting longer, Valentine's day came and went, my baby girl is soooo not a baby anymore, and my three year old son is using words like "actually" and "appreciation." What the heck happened? Time is flying by way too fast. Before I know it I will be eight-two sitting on my front porch telling my grand-children about the days when we all used to watch these silly TV shows about "reality." Until then, there are brownie cookies, white chocolate and macadamia nuts. Believe me, these cookies will make time stand still, if only for a minute. 
Ingredients are a plenty. A good use for the accidental purchase of macadamia nuts. My husband thought they were Marcona almonds...oops. But I put them too good use in these cookies. The crunchy nuts with the sweet chewy cookie are just about the best ever. 
 Chopped bittersweet chocolate into chunks. Ready to melt
 Melted butter and chocolate added to the flour mixture. The white chocolate chunks and nuts are then folded in.

 The cookies are soft and almost like a brownie meets fudge and says hello to some crazy nuts. They last a long time covered at room temperature and will definitely make you stop and enjoy this busy word we all walk around on. Enjoy!
