    I am a professional baker and have tried many, many bar recipes. This recipe is simply delicious. The basic brownie flavor brings comfort while the white chocolate and macadamia nuts add a unique twist so it's not just the same-old dessert. I would recommend this recipe when entertaining. As with all cookies, bars, and cakes, it's better to leave them slightly undercooked than to overcook them. If you are concerned about overcooking, try taking them out a bit early and covering the pan with foil while they cool.  -  26 Aug 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is one of best cookies I have ever tasted! Too bad macadamia nuts are such a fortune.  -  12 Jul 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These were excellent. They were gone before anything at the Easter concert at church.  -  13 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
