Don't waste money on the expensive commercial version of this cookie. Make your own at home. You can use a food processor to chop the macadamia nuts, but pulse carefully. If you chop them too finely, the cookies will be mealy.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 27 minutes


  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine (1 stick), softened
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate baking chips
  • 1 cup chopped macadamia nuts


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.

In large bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat butter and brown and granulated sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla until well combined. Reduce speed to low; beat in flour mixture just until blended. With wooden spoon, stir in white chocolate baking chips and macadamia nuts.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoons, 2 inches apart, on two ungreased cookie sheets. Bake until golden around edges, 10 to 12 minutes, rotating cookie sheets between upper and lower oven racks halfway through baking. With wide spatula, transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

Repeat with remaining dough.

Yield: about 36 cookies

Just alright, Member kathleenanng

I found this recipe too sweet! I recommend 1/2 cup of chips and 1/4 cup less of sugar. I am glad I didn't double the recipe. It made 29 regular size cookies. I am sure that many folks will enjoy them.
