Classic White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Growing up, I remember thinking that white chocolate macadamia nut cookies were the best cookies that ever existed. Twenty plus years later, I still agree that very few cookies can beat out the amazing qualities of this classic. 

Unlike most of the recipes on my blog, this recipe (inspired by Back for Seconds) calls for serious butter and sugar usage. :/ But, it is so worth it. 

For my healthy recipe followers, please don't be alarmed! I have posted some amazing healthy recipes on this blog too that are completely vegan, gluten free, and only sweetened with fruits! Check out these Epic Pecan Pie Bars or these Chocolate Chip Almond Flour Cookies!


2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter at room temperature
2/3 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon corn starch
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 and 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup unsalted macadamia nuts (if salted, rinse before using)


Following these instructions exactly will provide the best results.

1. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until smooth and creamy. This will take three to five minutes with a hand mixer.

2. Add vanilla extract, eggs, salt, corn starch, baking soda, and baking powder. Mix well.
3. Sift in the flour and mix until well combined.
4. Stir in the chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.
5. Roll one heaping tablespoon worth of dough into a ball and place on a baking sheet with parchment paper (or on an ungreased baking sheet).  Repeat and leave 2 to 3 inches between each cookie as these cookies expand like crazy.
6. Bake at 325 degrees for 12-13 minutes until the cookies start to become a very light golden brown. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool for about five minutes prior to transferring the cookies (otherwise they may break!).
7. Enjoy! Feel free to store leftover cookies in an air tight container in the fridge!
