We were heading to a good friend’s house for dinner and I was asked to bring a dessert. I decided to bake cookies because they are quick and easy to make and everyone loves them. I found this white chocolate macadamia nut cookie recipe from The Crepes of Wrath and they looked and sounded so good I decided to make them. They were one of the best cookies I have EVER eaten. I used salty nuts which gave them a sweet/salty combination that I loved. These cookies were moist and absolutely delicious. The adults and kids all loved them – especially dipped in ice cold milk. Make these cookies…you won’t regret it.

Recipe from The Crepes of Wrath
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup butter, melted
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups (chopped, if needed) macadamia nuts
- 2 cups white chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl then set aside. Beat together the melted butter, brown sugar, white sugar, egg, egg yolk and vanilla with a mixer until creamy.
Gradually add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture until just mixed. Stir in the macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips by hand. Drop by the spoonful onto a greased or lined baking sheet.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges look golden brown. Cool on the baking sheet for at least 4-5 minutes (so cookies can set) before moving to a rack. Enjoy.
