I would make these again. I'm not an avid baker but do enjoy experimenting. Love Macademia nuts so thought I'd give it a try last Christmas...YUMMM! 5 stars

Would not make this again.
These take forever to bake. Toothpick is not clean after 40 minutes! And they're still quite gooey. Not worth wasting the ingredients.
