When we lived in Dallas, we were in love with a grocery store. It’s called Central Market, and unfortunately for us, it’s only in Texas. Think Whole Foods or Fresh Market, but way bigger and way cooler. There’s no doubt that we were spoiled by it. There was a wonderful bakery there, and I loved their chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies. I’ve never had cookies so delicious in my life. This was my attempt to bring a little of that Texas goodness here. These cookies, sadly, didn’t come close to the ones at Central Market. Then again, I don’t think any ever will. They were super tasty, though, and I think I will definitely make them again soon
