This has been a busy week and I almost decided not to bake, I'm sure, like that would ever happen. My DH came home from the hospital on Friday, he had shoulder replacement surgery, and things were a bit off last night. I don't think I slept at all and had to work this morning; at least I only had one client. Anyway back to the baking, this weeks recipe was chosen by non other than Melissa Murphy the author of The Sweet Melissa Baking Book. I knew DH would enjoy these cookies and he did, I don't put nuts in my chocolate chip cookies but these added a nice crunch. I used pecans because I couldn't find the almonds hidden in the pantry, and I was not going back to the store. These tasted just fine with pecans, but I wish I had tried them with the macadamia nuts I found in the pantry. I didn't freeze the dough, just chilled it well before baking; they would never have lasted in the freezer so why waste freezer space, LOL. Nice change to a chocolate chip cookie and a very easy recipe.
