White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

I was served white chocolate macadamia nut cookies at a restaurant in Springfield, MO, during a business conference. Went home and made up this recipe which has been a hit at any church gathering I take them to. They're even better than the one I had at the conference.


    • 1 cup butter, softened

    • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar

    • ½ cup white sugar

    • 2 large eggs

    • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

    • ½ teaspoon almond extract

    • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

    • 1 teaspoon baking soda

    • ½ teaspoon salt

    • 1 cup coarsely chopped macadamia nuts

    • 1 cup coarsely chopped white chocolate


    1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    2. Beat butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla and almond extracts.

    3. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in another bowl. Gradually stir flour mixture into butter mixture; fold in macadamia nuts and white chocolate.

    4. Drop spoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

    5. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
