These Milk Chocolate and Macadamia Nut cookies are my take on the Sausalito cookies from Pepperidge Farm.

My kids prefer to not have nuts in their cookies, except when it comes to macadamias. We ALL love macadamia nuts!

You can certainly use whatever NUT you prefer, pecans would be great in this cookie too.
