Macadamia Cranberry Cookies

My friend Susan brought these cookies to the swap a few years ago, but I still remember how much I liked them!

2/3 c. macadamia nuts
1/2 c. sugar
1/2. c. packed brown sugar
1 t vanilla
1 egg
1 1/4 c. flour
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1/8 t nutmeg
1/2 dried, sweetened cranberries

Process nuts in food processor until smooth. Combine macadamia butter, sugar, and brown sugar in large bowl and beat at medium speed. Add vanilla and egg; beat well. Combine dry ingredients and add to sugar mixture. Beat at low speed until combined (mixture will be thick.) Stir in cranberries and chill 10 minutes.

Roll dough into 30 balls. Place 1 T sugar into a small bowl, and lightly press each ball into sugar and place on cookie sheet. Make criss-cross pattern with forks. Bake at 375F for 9 minutes.
