Paleo Chocolate Chip Coconut MacNut Cookies

A staple holiday cookie in my house are White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies.  I found a great recipe a few years ago and have just always included them on my Christmas baking list.  

These cookies are  sweet and salty, delivering the combination this classic cookie recreation needs!  The crunch of the macadamia nuts and the creaminess of the chocolate creates a flavor that truly has my name all over it!
