White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies

The other day, my husband and I went to the grocery store to pick up a few items for dinner. Of course, I beelined it straight to the baking aisle after we gathered all the items we initially set out to buy. As I perused the baking aisle, I came across tiny packages of macadamia nuts and my mouth began to water.

I’m such a sucker for white chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies which is weird because I’m not a huge fan of white chocolate on its own. I’m not a picky eater by any means, but for some reason I find white chocolate to be on the way too sweet side. However, the macadamia nuts in the cookies calm down the sweetness of the chocolate to the point where I can eat multiple cookies in one sitting . . . and let me tell you, this is not good for the waistline!

The weather in D.C. was nothing short of gross tonight so I stayed in and went to work baking cookies. This recipe is quick and easy…and you will end up with a ton of cookies in the end.

White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 10 ounces white chocolate (chips or bars cut into chunks)
  • 1 cup macadamia nuts, chopped into chunks


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and salt with an electric mixer until creamy.
  3. Add eggs, beat well.
  4. In a separate bowl, stir together flour and the baking soda; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended.
  5. Stir in white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.
  6. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  7. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. (Edges are golden brown and center is set.)
  8. Cool slightly, remove from cookie sheet to wire rack to cool completely.

…Put some on a plate, grab a glass of milk and enjoy!
