white chocolate macadamia nut cookies: best recipe ever

if I had to pay money for this recipe, I would pay a lot.  I've been making these cookies for years and they are my go-to cookies for surprise guests, because this is one of those recipes that tastes much more complicated than it is to prepare and they are so quick to make!    these cookies take seriously under 10 minutes to get in the oven, they are FAST.  they are beyond delicious and in my opinion, a must have recipe for everyone!
