Well, We have reached day three of cookie week and let me tell you I’m pooped! All these bakeries are doing such a fine job promoting and selling their cookies that people are coming in droves! If you have no idea what I’m talking about check out the site forNational Cookie Week!
This cookie was inspired by pizza. I’m from Brooklyn, you see, and it’s basically the land of pizza. There is nothing like a good slice from Casa Calamari but on occasion I do love specialty slices. amongst my favorite are chicken marsala, white slices, The Brid from Two Boots and Hawaiian! SO I thought to myself why not? Why not…try to invoke a little more summer in a cookie and make a Hawaiian cookie. Yup you heard right! Bacon, Pineapple and all!
1 cup unsalted butter (softened)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1.5 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cup flour
1tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt

1/3 cup macadamia nuts (chopped)
