Om Nom Nom Delicious White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

I love experimenting, but sometimes I wish I didn’t. The problem is that I have fallen in love with my dad’s DSLR. I was experimenting to see how much of an effect it would have on my food photography. Wow. I could take a nice overview shot and still see the texture of my goodies. With my point-and-shoot, I had to get up close and personal before I could photograph the texture of my food, which often resulted in tight compositions.

You see my dilemma? I can’t go back to point-and-shoots anymore! I try to convince myself that I still need my point-and-shoot because it’s a good way to practice my composition skills...but the quality isn't the same. ='(

On a side note, these cookies were delicious. Chewy and moist with the crunch from the nuts. Mmmm…and the creaminess of the white chocolate melting in your mouth. Best combination e-var. My only issue with the recipe was that I found it too sweet so I reduced the sugar amount in the recipe below.
