White Chocolate with Macadamia Nuts

Whoever invented white chocolate with macadamia nuts.  The combination of both is such a treat.  I just baked a batch of this today and my kids could not take their hands off it.  The cookie itself was so delicate and semi soft.  This is a cookie that everyone should try making.


1/2 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup white sugar ( I just added about 3 tbsp of brown sugar)
1 egg
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup plus 2 tbsp flour
A little shy of 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup macadamia nuts
1/2 cup white chocolate

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cream the butter and sugar till pale and fluffy.  Add in the egg and beat well.
  • Add vanilla, baking soda, salt and sifted flour.
  • Stir in the chocolate and nuts.
  • Drop by teaspoonful onto the lined tray.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes. Do not overbake. Cool completely on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container or enjoy immediately with a cup of tea/milk.
