White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies
These ultra-chewy cookies are loaded with creamy white chocolate and heavenly macadamia nuts. They are two indulgent flavors that come together in these out-of-this-world cookies!
I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to post a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie recipe. It’s been one of my favorite kind of cookies ever since I was a kid. This recipe from The Kitchen Magpie is the best one out there. It’s simple to make, there is no chilling, and it’s the chewiest cookie dough I’ve ever experienced. I think I’m going to start using it as my master cookie dough from now on.
This week I’m co-hosting a virtual potluck party called Fiesta Friday with my friend and former colleague, Alisa from Livin’Well. Alisa and I used to work together back when I was working for the Yellow Pages Directory. Remember the phone book guys? Yeah, some of you don’t even know what I’m talking about (that’s how old I am, lol). Yellow Pages is a digital company now, and I’m not even sure if they still print phone books anymore. Shows you how times have changed.
Anyways, back to something that will never go out of style: these scrumptious white chocolate macadamia nut cookies. They are incredibly soft and chewy with a buttery-brown sugar taste. The macadamia nuts give a nice crunchy texture in contrast to the soft and creamy texture from the white chocolate chips. These cookies taste like vanilla and warm toasted nuts.Print

Hi, loving your recipes from down under.. just wondering if I can use salted macadamia and if I do should I omit the teaspoon of salt? Thanks
Yes, I would recommend omitting the salt. I hope you enjoy the cookies and have a great weekend!
They were brilliant, thanks again
You’re welcome! I’m so glad you enjoyed them:)
Can I replace the white chocolate with chocolate chip?
Yes, but I would recommend milk chocolate chips for more of a compliment to the macadamia nuts. Semi-sweet or dark is too bold.
Your cookies look and taste amazing as always! Love them!
