These chewy cookies with soft centers and crisp edges are addictive! White chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies have always been one of my favorite cookies! Why? I love how the sweet white chocolate chips and crunchy macadamias compliment each other in these classic cookies!


Units Scale
  • 1 cup room temperature Butter (no substitutes)
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda

  • 3 cups Flour
  • 1 cups White Chocolate Chips
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped Macadamia Nuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare a cookie sheet or two by lining them with parchment paper or lightly spraying them with non stick cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl or in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the room temperature butter with the white sugar.
  4. Mix in the eggs and vanilla extract.
  5. Add the baking soda and salt.
  6. Add 2 cups of the flour and mix well.
  7. Add the macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips and mix at a low speed to avoid flipping them out of the bowl.
  8. Add the last cup of flour and mix well once more.
  9. Scoop the cookie dough with a #40 cookie scoop or by tablespoonfuls that are roughly 1 1/2 Tbs of cookie dough.
  10. Place the cookie dough balls on the prepared baking sheets.

  • These cookies are not going to turn golden brown until they are very overbaked. After 10 minutes the cookies will be puffed up and still be white in color. They are done.
  • Overbaking will made these cookies brittle so be sure to not overbake them.
