White Chocolate Mixed Nut Cookies {52 Cookies in a Year}

I love chocolate!  All kinds in fact from milk to white, dark is my favorite and I even like bitter sweet!  {hint for next week’s cookie recipe}

The only thing that I am not fond of is nuts.  I love peanuts, pecans and pistachios but after that you pretty much have to force them on me.  That is until you put them on top of ice cream or cover them in chocolate.  {ding, ding}

This was a recipe for white chocolate macadamia nut cookies and I just used a can of chopped mixed nuts. {peanuts, pistachios, pecans, walnuts, macadamia, and other varieties.  I found this little can at Target for like $2 so it was perfect!

Rondell and I love white chocolate chip cookies but with no nuts. I'll have to try this one minus the nuts because yours look really good.
