How can I explain to you that I don’t really like white chocolate, but that I LOVE these cookies?!

I know there are die hard white chocolate fans out there.

I get it.

You don’t really like regular chocolate and white chocolate hits those notes for you.

Doesn’t really sound like I’m selling this cookie, though, does it?

Hear me out. I actually made these originally because I know it’s a very popular cookie and I really don’t have anything like it on my site.

But I am here to tell you, I completely sold myself on these cookies!

The white chocolate isn’t too overly sweet (like it can be sometimes) and the macadamia nuts are what I am about these days! They can be a little tricky to find in the grocery store, but it is worth the search.

The cookie itself is practically perfect with it’s crispy edges and tender middle. I like mine slightly on the under done side so feel free to play around with the bake time.

I gave a little sneak peak on Instagram Stories of these when I initially made them and I received so many messages of people telling me this was their all time favorite cookie.

Give it a try and let me know what you think! Does it hold up to your cookie standards?

How To Make White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl cream together the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar for 3 minutes on medium speed.
  3. Add in eggs and vanilla and mix until well blended.
  4. In a separate bowl whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda and salt then slowly add to the wet ingredients.
  5. I promise your cookies will turn out better if you take the time for step 4.
  6. Blend until the flour is halfway incorporated. You don’t want to over mix the dough.
  7. Add in the white chocolate chips and chopped macadamia nuts.
  8. Finish mixing until the flour is just incorporated.
  9. Using a large cookie scoop* or 1/4 cup measuring cup, scoop up dough and place onto a large plate.
  10. Chill in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
  11. Place 6 dough balls onto a baking sheet. Make sure to space them evenly apart.
  12. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
  13. Add a few more white chocolate chips to the top of each cookie immediately after removing from the oven.
  14. Let them cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet then transfer to a cooling rack.
  15. Repeat with the remaining dough.
