White Chocolate and Macadamia Cookies

Indulge in the irresistible combination of sweet white chocolate and buttery macadamia nuts with these mouthwatering white chocolate macadamia cookies.

If you’re a fan of cookies, then you have probably heard of the classic chocolate chip cookie recipe. But, have you tried adding white chocolate and macadamia nuts into the mix? Let me tell you, it’s a game-changer. These cookies have the perfect combination of sweet and nutty flavours that make them impossible to resist.

One of the best things about this cookie is that it can be made to suit different preferences. If you’re like me and prefer soft cookies, make sure to undercook it a little. But if you prefer a crunchy texture, cook it a little longer, and you’ll have yourself a crunchy cookie. Also, if you’re allergic to nuts, you can swap out the macadamia nuts for another type of nut or fruit or leave them out entirely.

These white chocolate and macadamia cookies can also be frozen, but I put them in our cookie jar and they are typically gone within 2 days.
