Sift in flour and other dry ingredients.
Form mixture into tablespoon size balls, place on greased tray and flatten with fork.

Sonya in Australia says: I loved this recipe. They were so buttery. I didn’t have Macadamia nuts so used crushed nuts instead. I will make this one again.
Christine from Australia says: These cookies are just divine! I made some for the girls at work and they loved them – I’ve had to refer them all to this site! My husband and kids had devoured the rest before I even got home from work and now I make at least 2 batches of these a week!
