White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

White chocolate macadamia nut cookies turn out thick, chewy, and full of white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts. These cookies are one of my husband’s favorites and he’s quite the cookie connoisseur.

If there is one thing my husband loves more than just about anything (including me, sadly) it’s a good cookie.

The man eats them for breakfast. He eats them for snacks. He eats them for dessert.

He knows his cookies and he loves his cookies.

These white chocolate macadamia cookies are some of his favorites.

Personally, I’ve never been a big ‘white chocolate’ fan. I mean, it’s fine. It’s just not my favorite.

But, when you pair that sweet white chocolate with creamy macadamia nuts? Oh yeah. Put me down for a dozen of those, please.

How to make white chocolate chip cookies with macadamia nuts:

I’m starting with my all time favorite cookie base. It makes FAT, CHEWY, THICK cookies and it’s beyond easy.

You’ll start with a stick of melted butter. Beat that into some brown and white sugar – you can do this by hand if you prefer, but I use my mixer to keep life easy.

You’ll add in an egg and some vanilla. Standard cookie stuff happening here.

Stir in your flour, baking soda, and salt.

There’s your dough. Easy peasy and I LOVE that you don’t have to wait for butter to soften and you don’t have to chill the dough. It will still bake up thick and chewy!

Next, you’ll chop up some macadamia nuts and stir those into the dough, along with some white chocolate chips.

We like BIG cookies in this house, so I portion this dough out into just 9 cookies. The thicker, fatter, and bigger the better, if you ask me.

Bake these cookies for 11 minutes exactly and then let them cool on the pan for at least 5 minutes. The centers will still be a bit gooey, so it’s pretty important to let them cool for a bit before digging in.

These white macadamia nut cookie are outrageously good and I know you’re going to love them!
