Prep Time

Cooking Time

20 Minutes
10-12 Minutes


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup macadamia nuts, roughly chopped

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies Ingredients


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Prepare a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or lightly greased with butter. This will ensure that the cookies don’t stick and will bake evenly.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy. This step is essential for achieving that perfect texture!
  3. Incorporate the eggs, one at a time, into the butter-sugar mixture, ensuring each egg is fully mixed in before adding the next. Next, add the vanilla extract and give it a good stir.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add this dry ingredient mixture to the buttery mixture, mixing well after each addition. The dough should come together to form a cohesive, soft dough.
  5. Now, it’s time to add the star players of these cookies: white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts. Gently fold them into the dough until they are evenly distributed throughout. Be careful not to overmix at this stage, as we don’t want to crush the nuts or melt the chocolate.
  6. Scoop heaping tablespoons of dough and roll them into balls, placing them about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. Remember, the dough will spread while baking, so give them some room to breathe.
  7. Pop the baking sheet into the preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden. The centers should still appear slightly soft, as they will continue to firm up as they cool.
  8. Once baked, take the cookies out of the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. The waiting might be a challenge, as the enticing aroma fills the air, but trust me, it’s worth it!

Tips and Variations:

  • For a chewier texture, you can substitute 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour with bread flour.
  • To enhance the nutty flavor, you can lightly toast the macadamia nuts in a dry skillet before adding them to the dough. Just be careful not to over-toast them; we want a light crunch, not a burnt taste.
  • If you prefer darker chocolate, you can use a combination of white and dark chocolate chips for a delightful contrast.
