LOVE IT !!!
I have been making these for 50 years only with chopped walnuts, nice to have the different taste with the candied pineapple.
This cookie is wonderful! It differs from a Russian Tea Cake with it's sweeter dough. Also, the crunch of the macadamia nuts is perfect, not soft like a walnut or pecan! For those concerned about the pineapple, fear not, beacuse it's masked well. I LOVED this cookie!
