Hawaiian Tea Cookies
I lost my mother 30 years ago, when I was in my 20's. When I was quite young, we lived in Hawaii and I remember she would make these cookies for holidays. It was only when I grew up and moved away that I learned these were also known as Russian Tea Cookies and could be made with pecans. But for me, macadamia nuts will always be the best and they will always remind me of my mother.
