White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies

Exciting weekend around here...we received a FIVE PAGE letter from Elder Brown and a camera memory card.  PHOTOS!!.  Oh, happy day!!  One of the things that he asked for was his winter things.  Matt is a big time snowboarder so he has lots of cold weather gear and it seems that the temperature is dropping in Seattle and he's getting a bit chilly on a bike so during General Conference I whipped up this family favorite.  Double batch.  Some for him and his companion and some for us 'cause what's Conference without treats?  Good thing it only comes around twice a year...
White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies
3/4 cup butter flavored Crisco
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbs. milk
