White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Recently I have been getting cookie requests from friends and co-workers.  One lady I work with really wanted White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies, so I decided to make some.  I found this recipe on the Brown Eyed Baker website and made my shopping list.  This recipe has been added to my favorites list for a few reasons.  First, because they taste amazing! Second, because they don't need room temperature butter!  And third, because they are soft, gooey, and white chocolaty!  If you normally buy these cookies at Costco, or another grocery store, you will not be disappointed by these homemade ones.  They are large and in charge and again, amazing!

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies - Adapted from Brown Eyed Baker
Yield: About 2 Dozen Large Cookies

2 Cups Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
3/4 Cup Butter, unsalted and melted
1 Cup Brown Sugar, light brown
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Egg
1 Egg Yolk
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
2 Cups Macadamia Nut, Chopped
2 Cups White Chocolate Chips

  1. Preheat oven to 325. Prepare the baking sheets.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt.  Set aside.
  3. Beat together the melted butter, brown sugar, and white sugar.  Beat in the eggs and then vanilla.  
  4. Gradually add the flour mixture and mix just until incorporated.  Add the white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts, mix just for a second. 
  5. Drop large tablespoon size cookies onto prepared cookie sheet.  Flatten the dough just a little bit with your palm.  
  6. Bake cookies for 13-15 minutes, or until lightly golden brown around the edges. Allow to cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheet, then move to cooling rack.
  7. Enjoy!


  1. These look delicious. They are my husband's all-time favorite cookie. He would be glad to take these off your hands! Thanks for sharing on Sweet Indulgences Sunday. Kim

  2. Mmm, you're right, with cookies that look that tasty, I wouldn't ever need to buy them ever again.

  3. Who can resist a macadamia nut cookie fresh out of the oven? I am thinking no one. :) Beautiful job on these.

  4. I love this combination in a cookie. Yours look amazing!!!

  5. Soft and Gooey! Oh yes :)

    I am obsessed with Subway's version of the cookie - I wonder if these are like them?
