Ingredients for white chocolate macadamia nut cookies
-Flour: We need 2 1/2 cups to be the gluten-filled base of our cookie dough.
-Baking soda: With 1 teaspoon of baking soda we can help these cookies to puff up nicely while baking.
-Salt: Salt is a flavor enhancer and adding 1 teaspoon of salt into the dough will make all of the other flavors tastes wonderful.
-Butter: We will need 1 cup (2 sticks) of softened butter to make sure that the cookies are nice and rich tasting.
-Sugars: With a combination of 3/4 cups white sugar and 3/4 cups of packed brown sugar we can have sweet and moist cookies with a nice chewy texture.
-Vanilla: 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla will make the cookies perfectly flavored.
-Eggs: We want 2 eggs to help bind the cookies together and give us a good texture.
-Macadamia nuts: 1/2 cup of chopped macadamia nuts will go into the cookie dough but we will need more for additional topping.
-White chocolate chips: 2 cups of white chocolate chips will go into the dough but having more for topping will give us a melted chocolate look.
How to make macadamia nut cookies
Mix the flour, baking soda, and salt in a small mixing bowl and set it aside.
In a larger mixing bowl combine the granulated sugar, brown sugar, butter, and eggs.
Add in the vanilla and mix well.
Add in the flour mixture and mix again.
Stir in the nuts and the chocolate chips.
Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper and use a cookie scoop to drop cookie dough onto the baking sheet. For larger cookies, you can use a 3tbsp scoop and for smaller ones use a 1 1/2 tbsp sized scoop.
Add in a few more white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts to the top of each cookie dough ball before baking.
Bake in an oven set at 350 degrees F. Large cookies will bake in about 12-14 minutes and smaller cookies bake in about 9-11 minutes.
Leave the cookies on the tray for 5 minutes to finish cooking and start cooling enough for easy transfer.
Transfer cookies to a rack to finish cooling completely. Enjoy!
Awesome tips to get the PERFECT Mrs.Fields White Chocolate Chip Cookies:
I like to use 3 special items to help make the perfect cookies. These items not only make the cookies turn out perfectly every time but also help to make my job (as the baker) to be even easier.
1- I use pre-cut parchment paper. This paper comes already sized so I just take a sheet and lay it in my 12×16 cookie sheet with no added hassle. Using parchment paper prevents cookies from overcooking on the bottom and keeps the pan from getting messy.
2- I use my KitchenAid mixer. This does all of the mixing work for me so that I don’t have to strain my wrist muscles using a whisk or electric hand mixer. It’s fast and easy and thanks to the stand mixer my dough is uniformly mixed.
3- I use a cookie scoop. My cookies turn out much nicer looking and more even in size thanks to a cookie scoop. I highly recommend them as they can come in different sizes and be used for multiple things including scooping cupcake batters and more.

This is a great recipe for macadamia nut cookies. They came out beautifully. So delicious!
One of my favorite type of cookies. We used to get them at the mall. I was trying to find a print link so I could print it out but I could not find one. Do you have one? I can use my share button to print it, but it comes up as 25 pages. Thanks for any info. And thank you for the recipe.
Hi Judy, there are two print buttons on the page for these cookies, one at the top of the page under the title and another one about halfway down the page in the recipe card, also under the title. Hopefully that helps. If not, you should be able to use this link to take you to the printing page: https://familycookierecipes.com/wprm_print/5012
