About the Recipe

These cookies are one of my favorites. The first time I had them I go them from this specialty cookie shop called Felix and Norton's, they made the best cookies in town. Nowadays, I usually only get a chance to eat them if I happen to go to a take out place that has them as dessert options (ie: Subway). And I will most definitely choose them over anything else. I do not make them often at home because for one, Macadamia nuts are not all that readily available where I am, and for two, white chocolate on it's own is not my favorite and so, I never really buy it. However, over Christmas and Easter, we tend to get a lot of chocolate from one source or another and white chocolate is bound to show up in the mix. Since no one really likes white chocolate on it's own in my house, it sits around on the counter or in the cupboard for months on end.
The only way to get rid of it is to transform it into something else.
So this year, this recipe came out again and it is here to stay.
Get ready for my delicious White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookie Recipe.

Easy and quick to make and easier and quicker to eat.

Now, let's get to the good stuff!

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until smooth.

Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add this dry mixture to the butter mixture and mix until well combined.

Fold in the chopped macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips until evenly distributed in the dough.

Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.

Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.

Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely.
