White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Scarp

I have tried many recipe ideas for these cookies, and I believe this one is truly the best. I always under-bake them because I believe these cookies are best as soft as possible.

GREAT cookie! Stayed semi-soft. Crunchy enough to be a nice "milk and cookie" type cookie, but soft enough to enjoy alone too. My soon to be F-i-L love them! They were his Christmas gift... he couldn't get enough. Thanks for the recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, shortening, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth.
  3. Beat in each egg, one at a time. Then, stir in the vanilla and almond extracts.
  4. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk together, and then gradually add to the creamed mixture (add in 2 or 3 parts).
  5. Mix in the macadamia nuts and white chocolate. If you like the cookies chunky, add plenty of extra white chocolate/nuts.
  6. Drop the dough by the tablespoonful onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  7. Bake for 7-10 minutes, depending on how soft you would like the cookies to be.
