I am not a great cook, but I love to make these cookies with my kids. They got their name because I would always say, "Cook 'em, Dano" when I put them in the oven, and my squad car number is 5-0, so my kids started calling them the Hawaii 5-0 cookies. Even though they are quick and super easy, they still taste great.



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Drop prepared cookie dough by tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets, leaving 1-inch between each cookie. Press the macadamia nuts into the dough. Bake until golden around the edges, about 8 to 10 minutes.
