White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies


Just a few days ago Pam blogged about White Chocolate Macadamia. Then just today Cathy blogged about them. Little did either of them know that I also was going to be blogging them! This is Grumpy's favorite type of cookie and since I have been making his lunch box treats I had decided to make these over the weekend for him! All I can say is great minds think alike! ;o)

My recipe is a little different as I use one I found on allrecipes.com. Grumpy likes his cookies not crunchy. He likes them soft and chewy. These aren't really chewy, but they are soft. They are pretty darn good too as I am having a hard time leaving them alone.....although I have been good and only have eaten one today. I won't tell you how many I ate yesterday though.....


White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies
allrecipes.com

1 cup butter, softened (I used 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup butter flavor Crisco)
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup coarsely chopped macadamia nuts
1 cup coarsely chopped white chocolate

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

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and almond extracts. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; gradually stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in the macadamia nuts and white chocolate. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.

I like my cookies soft too! They look delicious! Maybe I'd better put them on the list to make!

Delicious looking cookies. I don't think I could stop just at one either.

Carrie said...

These cookies always taste so nice and buttery! Yours look great...chockful of goodies.

Lori said...

And I made them on the 16th, well, bars not cookies, but white chocolate and macadamia. I got them on sale at BJ's. Maybe everybody saw a sale on macadamias, spurring on a plethora of white choc, macadamia cookies. Sorry, just having a moment of silliness. These look great! Definitely drool worthy. But I like Grumpy, love these kind of cookies!

Elyse said...

Oh man, these cookies look delicious! Grumpy and I are quite alike: I love a soft and chewy cookie. Very rarely do I like anything "crispy" when it comes to a cookie. Save crisp for potato chips. I can't wait to try out your recipe. YUM!

burpandslurp said...

I'll be dreaming about this all night! delicious!

Carrian said...

YUM!! I always am trying to make cookies with white choco chips and sometimes they just don't turn out. I am bound and determine to find a good oatmeal, craisin white choco chip recipe so maybe this is a start for me!

Bunny said...

I LOVE soft cookies Shelby these look amazing! I'm gonna have to make them next!

Lynda said...

These look really delicious; I've seen several posts for similar cookies lately, now I just have to decide which one to make!

Coleen's Recipes said...

When you see the same recipe popping up in different places, you KNOW its a good one.

Cristine said...

Those look heavenly! I have a recipe I normally use, but your picture has me wanting these! I think I'll make them to have on hand when Nathan gets home! :)

Pam said...

Great minds think alike! Yours look fantastic - I would love to dip one in ice cold milk right now.

emiglia said...

Looks awesome! I love soft and chewy cookies too. The key to a chewy cookie is melted butter and a higher proportion of brown sugar to white. I bet you could tinker with this recipe easily to get the cookies to be soft AND chewy. I'm gonna test it and let you know how it goes :)

shellyfish said...

Oh those do look like heaven!

Mari at Once Upon a Plate said...

Oh yah! Now THAT'S my kind of cookie ~ they look terrific Shelby, nice job. Thank you for sharing the recipe! xo~m.

Heidi said...

I can't wait to make these cookies I just posted some fun macadamia bars early this week. Must not let those macadamias go to waste. Perfect.

Allie said...

Yummy these are one of my favorite cookies!

Ingrid said...

I've seen these on Pam's and Sydney's blog,too! Love all the ingredients...really should stop being cookie lazy and make some.

Btw, I agree with Grumpy cookies should be soft and chewy! :)

I love white chocolate macadamia nut cookies ever since I first had them at Mrs Fields' cookie shops. In fact, the recipe I use is from her cookbook. These are my mom's favorites - she used to ask me to send some to her by mail. It is one of the best cookie flavor combos!

pigpigscorner said...

Now you too!!! I really have to make some of these!

Katie said...

These are my Mom's favorite cookie! I will have to make them for her.

The Food Librarian said...

Kevin said...

I make these quite often. They are my all time favorite cookie!
