Sue's Oatmeal Macadamia Nut Cookies

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This is an old family recipe that I 'tweaked' by adding macadamia nuts. I bake about 1,000 of these every year for our St Joseph Garden Tour and I don't even have any crumbs left.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • Sift flour, resift with salt and baking soda. Stir in oats and nuts and set aside.
  • Cream together sugar and shortening. Add eggs and vanilla. Add dry ingredients and beat til thoroughly mixed.
  • Roll dough in waxed paper like logs, shaping as you roll. Refrigerate overnight.
  • Unroll cookie dough and slice 1/4 inch thick and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 10 to 12 minutes.
