Let the cookie baking begin!!! Last weekend, we baked up about 8 dozen cookies to give away to friends, neighbors and clients. It was the most warm, festive, sugar-high, Christmas-spirited day. For a few weeks, we perused all my December food magazines and searched cookbooks marking possible recipes. Then, we made a long list and my husband and I took turns picking favorites until we had 5 different recipes. Unfortunately, a number of them were thwarted by the total sell-out in the baked goods aisle at the store. I have never seen anything like it in an American grocery store. The shelves were nearly bare!

But, I love a good excuse to change directions and be spontaneous. Still lurking and waiting to be bought were a number of bottles of large, salted macadamia nuts. Although I love white chocolate, macadamia nut cookies, I have never made them myself. I searched online and found this recipe that was rated highly by all who tried it.

Honestly, this was the best cookie dough/beater licking ever. I knew from the fragrant, salty-sweet batter that we were in for a treat. The fresh baked cookies were sublime. They are so good that just moments ago, I opened up a gift box of cookies intended for my office neighbor and snitched one out for myself!

White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies
Makes about 3 dozen 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 teaspoons baking soda
10 ounces white chocolate (chips or bars cut in chunks)
1 cup macadamia nuts, chopped into chunks


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

    Hi there,

    I really can’t wait to try out your recipe! Lately I have been baking my own triple chocolate cookies, they have been a big hit with my friends and family as you would imagine. I have really started getting into it and have started up my own small business baking. As I wanted to give my cookies just that extra special look now that people are buying them of me I decided to design my own baking labels and I got a British labels company to print a batch out for me, they looked great and the prices were quite cheap to, it has made my cookies look and taste great.

  8. cbreeze Says:

    I just baked these cookies. They are realy great. My kids and my visiting mother ate them right out of the oven…….wasting no time for cooling. None left for thier dad…..I guess eatten cookies tell no tale.

  9. morgan Says:

    I am originally from Hawaii and LOVE white-choc-mac-nut cookies, but I’m currently living in New Zealand and had a hankering for home so I googled the recipe. I bought a HUGE slab of white chocolate and a bag of whole mac nuts and hand crushed them. I then used your recipe but added extra nuts and chocolates and it was HEAVENLY! Everyone in my house loved them and there were none to spare! I’ve had more than 3 people ask for the recipe! Thanks again, keep the goodness coming.

  13. Norma Says:

    This is the first time I tried making this kind of cookie, I made one little change I used 1/2 C. buter and 1/2 cup of butter Crisco. I was afraid the cookies would spread If I used all butter, as it has happened before when using all butter. I will try them next time using all butter just to see what happens.These were perfect,nice shape good taste,very good.mmmmm good. They will be for a birthday gift tomorrow.Keep those recipes coming. Thanks……

  14. Ciara Says:

    OMG I just ate one of these right out of the oven. Yummy! 8 minutes and they were perfect, very buttery and chewy.

  15. Debra Says:

    Used my laptop on the counter to follow directions. These turned out better than my regular chocolate chip cookies. So now I have copied it to my “little red book” and will use this Christmas. Thanks for posting your recipe.

    These are amazing!!!
    My husband said they taste just like the cookies from Subway.
    I will be making them again for a holiday cookie exchange.

  18. erin Says:

    I didn’t have white chocolate chips or macadamia nuts on hand and it’s rainy outside so I wasn’t up to walking to the grocery store. I still really wanted to try these so I ended up using 1 cup of chopped pecans and 1 bag of chipits skor bits instead of the white chocolate and macadamias and guess what…..amazing! Give it a try if you want to switch it up a little. The dough is awesome raw and baked! mmmm! I will for sure buy the proper ingredients on my next trip to the grocery store so I can try them the way they were intended.

  19. Kelley Says:

    These came out way too thin. Luckily, things don’t have to be pretty for my kids to eat it, so they didn’t go to waste. I had to add flour each batch until I finally had a firm enough batter to make a cookie that held up. The flavor was fantastic and well worth the effort, but let this be a warning to others trying this recipe for the first time – I will definately split the butter with crisco next time.

  20. Caroline Says:

    Thanks Kelley for your comments. I wonder if your butter was extra soft when you made the batter? I have never had them turn out thin. You could also try putting the dough in the fridge for about 30 minutes before baking.

    Thanks you for reading, giving the recipe a try and commenting!

  21. Kasey Says:

    How many cookies does this recipe make?

  22. Matt Says:

    The recipe makes about 4 to 5 dozen depending on the size of your cookies. This recipe was a big hit at a party I went to. Thanks for the great cookies!

  28. Jhane Says:

    I made these cookies and they were awesome. My family LOVED them.

  29. kc Says:

    Does this recipe call for regular butter–not unsalted butter? I was unsure because when baking, you usually use unsalted and then can add as much salt as you need. I’m getting ready to bake them and I just wanted to make sure. Thanks for clarifying!!

  30. Lisa Says:

    I made these at the request of a friend for her birthday. She told me her family ate them all and didn’t even leave one for her. I used unsalted butter and ended up with around 50 cookies. Thanks so much for a fantastic recipe!!!

  31. kc Says:

    This recipe was the biggest hit at Christmas this year! Many, many thanks! I ended up using regular butter and they were perfect.

  32. Cathy Clark Says:

    How many cookies does this make? Is this “batch” big enough for 15 Girl Scouts and parents ? Why do people always leave off how many the recipe makes ?

  33. Amanda Says:


    Stumbled across this while searching for a white choc. and macadamia recipe, and since yours said “BEST”, I figured I’d give it a go. :)

    They were really easy, even without an electric mixer, and turned out beautifully. I got about 45 out of the batch, they were a bit bigger towards the end. :) I used salted butter, but unsalted macadamia nuts.

    They’re for a friend, who swears this type of cookie is his favorite, especially if they’re chewy. Looks like we might have a winner! I’ll let you know.

  34. alea Says:

    I made these with succanat (dried sugar cane juice) instead of brown sugar and maple sugar (crystalized, not maple syrup) and they came out INCREDIBLE! They had a stronger molasses flavor and turned out a deep golden brown. In Vermont, my house stays a consistent 55 degrees so it was a little hard to get the butter to soften! fortunately the oven warmed the kitchen right up. Thanks, these are for my dad who needs a little cheer up!

  35. Ellie Says:

    I just made these and my whole house smells heavenly
    They are a gift for my inlaws 43rd wedding anniversary
    I hope my husband leaves some for them

  36. Rhonda Says:

    These are just what the name says: The Best White Choc…Cookies. I made them once for a friend around Thanksgiving, and I have gone back to this recipe at least a half dozen times since then. I used a store brand butter once, and the cookies were too flat and dry. But, as soon as I switched back to the better butter, the cookies came out perfect every time. They are just the right balance of salty and sweet. A real crowd pleaser!

  37. Deah =) Says:

    Ohh…delish. Chop the nuts and stick them in the oven to toast ‘em a bit while you’re mixing up the batter…gives them that extra little somethin-somethin.
    I’m taking these to a superbowl pty tomorrow. =) If there’s any let, that is…I’ll have to hide them (from my family And myself;).

  38. tara Says:

    oh, yum. my husband loves the combination of white chocolate and macadamia nuts, so i had to try these and they definitely did not disappoint!

  39. Jamie Says:

    WOW!!! These have to be the BEST white chocolate macadamia nut cookies I’ve ever eaten! The taste combination is out of this world! The word “BEST” in the recipe name is there for a reason. I had a 12oz pkg of white chips, so I used all of them. Everyone who I gave one of these to, absolutely LOVED it and asked for more. Don’t be shy. Try this one if you want a winner that they will ask for again! I know that I will definitely be making these again.

  40. Carla Says:

    I was wondering if anyone could direct me to a good recipe for a macadamia nut cookie that was made with whole wheat, honey and coconut.Trying to make it as healthy as I can.Have a sweetheart who had cancer is in remission but they eat only healthy sweets.He loves these cookies.But has too be whole wheat with honey.Can anyone help me???? This recipes sounds good.Could I just substitute the all purpose flour and sugar? Would this still maKe a good cookie? Trying to make a cookie for my sweetheart:-)Thank you for an replies:-)

  41. Launa Says:

    I have made these cookies many times with different recipes. This is definately the BEST recipe ever. Makes me think about giving up my day job and going into business selling cookies. I am going to make up a batch for the family for Easter. Thanks a bunch!

  42. Jenn Says:

    [...] The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie 11 04 2009 I look for a lot in a cookie, I won’t lie. Especially chocolate chip. I want them moist and chewy, but crisp and buttery at the same time. Impossible, right? The E.L. Fudge elves can’t even get it right.  Well, after stumbling upon the Best White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut cookies ever, I decided to modify and modify until I had the Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie.

  53. Jennifer Says:

    I made these cookies tonight,, they were extremely easy to make and they were very yummy,, only problem I had was they came out super thin, I prefer a thicker cookie as they seem to stay softer longer,, none the less they were incrediable,, my husband and my two year old LOVED them,, it does seem to make quite a big batch but you can freeze the remaining batter and bake later,, they come out just as well,, Thanks for sharing this recipe.:?)

    P.S. If anyone has any tips that I can try so they dont come out as thin please post,, thanks again for an amazingly tastey cookie!!

  54. Jennifer S. Says:

    I have always loved these cookies and usually would but them from schwanns food. Yeah! Now I can make my own a fraction of the cost. My husband loves them. They did not even get to cool. I am saving the recipe for Christmas the question is will I be able to get the cookies to the people I make them for – before they get eaten. Thanks for a excellent recipe.

  59. Michelle Says:

    I made these last night for a co-worker and had the same problem of being really thin. Wasn’t sure how they would be the next morning, but they were still soft and fantastic. My husband came and stole almost half my batter while i was making these! I received compliments from everyone who tried them. Might have to make them again for Christmas…and try Erin’s suggestions above.

  60. joanne Says:

    still making a double batch right now! there are fantastic! i always start making my Christmas cookies ahead and freezing them. i’ve already tried this once this year and two lil’ mice (well one little one and one big one LOL) kept getting in he freezer and ate them all!

  63. Valerie Says:

    I’m a Pastry Chef who works from home and I’ve decided to give this recipe a try with a few subtle changes; just to make sure the baking process and cookie dough come out soft & chewy while holding a thicker shape. My method of mixing/adding the ingredients will be a little different – as per my Chef background. Either way, I’m 100% sure they will come out successful because most of the ingredients are what I use for my Soft & Chewy C.C. Cookies. (of course with some changes) Tons of Thanks!

    I was craving these cookies and seeing the rave reviews, I thought I’d try these. Followed the instructions to a T. They looked wonderful, but were more cake like than chewy… and a tad too sweet, any tips on how to get them to be more chewy? Delicious though and loved the cookie dough raw!!

    Thank you for this yummy recipe. Took them to work and everyone loved them. The best compliment: one of my co-workers couldn’t stop eating them. I made them exactly as written, but next time will add more white chocolate chips (or chunks) and will roast the nuts a little first for better texture and more flavor. I had no problem with them being too thin, even when I made them larger (heaping Tbs), which we all preferred. They were easy and quick to make, too. I made them, in fact, while getting ready for work! Delicious recipe. Thanks again!

  87. Rebecca Says:

    I like trying new recipes and I just made these cookies for my boy friend for his birthday. I was very disappointed. Only eleven survived being removed from the pans. The rest are sitting in a bag to be used for cookie cereal or the fertalizer pile. They taste good but there’s too much butter, which made them ooze over the sides of the pans I used, necessitating cleaning the oven. If I make it again, I would probably use half as much, but I had better luck with a recipe from all last time I made them and they all came out perfect. These may taste good but I prefer cookies that look like cookies, not a bag full of broken pieces.

    There’s nothing left for me to say that the majority of those before me have already said! Definitely the best cookie I have ever tasted. I just finished baking these for an engagement party. I wanted to bring something classy, and these are definitely classy! The magic time I set my timer for was 11 minutes. Every cookie sheet batch was perfectly baked. I cannot understand why anyone would have problems in any way as some have stated. Follow the recipe, make the amount of dough on every cookie drop the same amount and they will bake perfectly at 11 minutes on the timer. That’s my contribution. I keep eating them because they are so very good. Still, there is plenty left for the party! Look no further for any other recipe… this is the one!

  96. Lindsey Says:

    I made these last week and they’re FANTASTIC! The second batch I made last night, however, as other reviewers had recommended, I swapped 1/2 the butter out for shortening and they came out much nicer. The first batch with all butter came out flat as pancakes, but still tasted amazing. The shortening allows the batter to hold up a little better. Love them!

I’ve been bitten by the baking bug while my husband has been deployed to Afghanistan and his once request has been for me to make him some white chocolate chunk macadamia nut cookies when he comes home. Not waiting for him, made after he comes home… so he can have them fresh from the oven! I’ve looked all over the internet trying to find a good recipe, but I’m pretty sure yours will win :)

  102. Melissa B Says:

    As soon as the batter was made, i was all over it ! Delicious…Im not a huge White Chocolate Macadamia fan, i made them for my boyfriend. I had my sister and a friend try them and asked for an honest opinion. They are really good! The only feedback i was getting was that it had an oily like taste to it, very buttery. Im not sure if thats just the taste of this type of cookie but i also felt like it was a little on the buttery side?…is it just me? Aside from that, i thought they were pretty damn good ! Any suggestions on what i may have done wrong? Or how i can give it a little more oomph?
    Thanks for the recipe!

  103. Katherine B Says:

    I love to cook but I am not the best baker. This receipe was so easy and super delicious. I made them for my boyfriend and he loved them so much he took the extra dough home so he could make some more at a later time. Even his friends he shared them with gave me the two thumbs up for how yummy they were. So glad I found your receipe!

  104. Suzie Says:

    I was looking for a good recipe for macadamia nut cookies to make for my husband so I googled it and came across this recipe and a Curtis Stone recipe. Most of the time I choose a recipe based on the ingredients and the pictures. Yours won and I was not dissappointed! My husband loved them and so did everyone else! This recipe is a keeper.

  105. Larry Says:

    Made these last night just an hour before going to a barbecue. They were awesome and quite the hit. I will definitely use this recipe again.

  106. PJ Says:

    This was a great recipe. I rolled mine into balls and they baked perfectly. I switched the cookie sheets halfway through baking and they baked perfectly. Semi crispy on the outside, but soft on the inside. Thank you!

  107. Sarah Says:

    I just made these cookies for the second time…perfection! I cooked them for 12 minutes instead of 8 minutes. I live at 5500 feet, so maybe they take longer at altitude? Either way, they were perfectly crispy on the bottom and sides and gooey on the inside. This is a new favorite!

  108. Jillian Says:

    I am obsessed with these cookies! They have become my staple go-to cookie. I discovered this recipe about a year ago and have made countless batches perfect everytime. We like super soft cookies so we take them out just as they begin to catmelize in col

  109. Jillian Says:

    *just as the begin to caramelize in color I take them out to cool and put them in a sealed container pretty quickly…. YUMMY YUMMY COOKIES!!

  110. Evelyn Says:

    This was my first time making/baking cookies from scratch, I was skeptical. However, everyone raved about my cookies, golden brown on the outside, soft on the inside, yummers! I found that storing batter overnight in the fridge in plastic wrap enhances the flavor. The second batch I made from the same batter that I stored in the fridge had my mom saying “The first ones were good, but these taste way better.” Perhaps the ingredients settle better that way =) Thank you very much for recipie, definitely making these again soon.

Im deciding to try yours based on all the wonderful feedback from others who have tried your recipe. I had a few queations though, can I make these into cookie “bars”? and will chilling the dough be even better?

  162. Mel R Says:

    I made these a few weeks ago after trying a different recipe that turned out terrible. These were wonderful!! I made a few adjustments here and there because I don’t really measure very specifically, but I don’t think you can screw these up! They are so tasty – I took them to work and they got devoured.

  166. Annie Says:

    OMG! I made these yesterday. They’re already almost gone, I can’t stop eating them. They are so good! I hate these cookies normally but they so buttery and yummy. I can’t stop! I made them because they were my grandpa’s favorite. I was thinking about him so I googled recipes and found this one. I chopped up a couple bars of Lindt Swiss White Chocolate bars. So good! I used parchment paper on the baking sheet. I think that made a difference too.

    I have made these cookies a few times. The first time I made them they were great but every time sense then they have turned out really really flat. My husband loves the flavor of these but Im about to give up on this recipe. I cant figure out what I am doing wrong. Can someone please help?

    tried the recipe but tasted a little bitter cause they were burnt slightly at the bottom.need to know whether u use baking powder or bicarbonate soda and about the baking sheet cause i used the baking tray which comes with the oven.need to know if this is why i went wrong.

    Tried the recipe last night. Cookies turned out so delish. According to my 13-year old daughter, these cookies are even better than Subway’s. She finished almost a dozen by this morning! Will be making these for Christmas as gifts!

    Loved this recipe…BIG hit! I made two batches,…one with dark brown sugar..really good! And one with golden brown sugar and almond flavoring instead of vanilla, with dried cranberries added….again,…GREAT!

  177. Meli Says:

    Just made these… They are delicious. It made just over 3 dozen large cookies. And I subbed 1/3 cup vanilla greek yogurt for 1/2 the butter.

  178. Rick Says:

    The first time I made these, I followed the recipe to the letter and, they were great.

    Tonight I replaced one cup of flour with one cup of oats ground to a near flour consistency and, used 1/2 cup coconut oil and one stick of butter. Also, added 1/2 cup dark cherries. This batter WAS a little thin but, the flavor was truly a ‘cookie monsters delight’!

  179. Teresa Says:

    Really yummy, soft, salty sweet, just what I was looking for. I only had 1/2 c. of macadamia nuts, so added 1/2 c. unsweetened shredded coconut to make the full cup, and they are divine! I am going to make them this way again… Thanks!

  180. Kim Says:

    These are delicious! I whipped up a double batch on Sunday and it made over 150 cookies. I have a chocolate chip cookie recipe that calls for pudding mix, and they are the best I have ever tried. So I am going to try it with this recipe too! Once these cookies are gone, that is. Should be by Sunday if I keep eating them the way I have!

    There are a number of factors that are likely to contribute tto the continuing popularity
    of paraffin as a source of energy for domestic properties. t already have
    one, obtain a drain pan and position it under the filter housing
    to catcfh any drips when you pull the filter out.
    Keep your goggles and gloves on, aas the residue
    in the pot can still be quite harsh against skin.
