White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Hello adventures and welcome back to another baking post. Since I’m sharing my favorite cookie recipes I decided to share my absolute favorite cookie ever white chocolate macadamia nut. Does anyone remember the assorted cookie trays that you can get at pretty much any store? Every time I would see these at any event or family visit I would always go for the white chocolate macadamia nut ones. So that was my inspiration for making these cookies, now onto the recipe.


  • 2 cups Cold Unsalted Butter
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 3 cups All-Purpose Flour ( or 1 1/2 cake flour, and 1 1/2 all-purpose if you prefer )
  • 1 teaspoon Cornstarch
  • 3/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup White chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped Macadamia nuts


Preheat oven to 410 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together cold cubed butter, brown sugar, and sugar for 4 minutes or until creamy. (I use a mixer)

Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one. Then add the vanilla, mixing until just combined.

Stir in flour cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Mix until just combined to avoid over-mixing. Stir in white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.

I use a large ice cream scoop to measure even dough balls on light colored tray lined with parchment paper. These will be large cookies. So I recommend only putting 4 cookie dough balls per pan, so they have enough room to spread out and puff up.

Bake for 9-12 minutes or until golden brown on top. Let them rest for at least 10 minutes to set.

Then enjoy.

Love, Payton
