the 34 cookies of Christmas: day 4

Our next cookie is one which was inspired by many trips to the beautiful islands of Hawai'i. A sweetened coconut base (much like a macaroon), is topped with a milk chocolate Hershey's Kiss (tm). Nestled in the kiss is a macadamia nut, adding both a buttery flavor and nutty crunch. We have tried baking these cookies with regular kisses, kisses with almonds, and the special extra dark kisses, but the mac nuts are our favorite... reminding us of good times spent baking with our friends in Hawai'i!

As they might say, "mele kalikimaka!" And we wish you the same!
