Soft And Chewy White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies


    • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 3 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 cup white chocolate chips
    • 1 cup macadamia nuts, chopped


    Preheat the Oven:

    Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

    Cream the Butter and Sugars:

    In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and light brown sugar until light and fluffy.

    Add Eggs and Vanilla:

    Beat in the eggs, one at a time, ensuring each is well incorporated before adding the next. Add the vanilla extract and mix until combined.

    Combine Dry Ingredients:

    In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

    Mix Wet and Dry Ingredients:

    Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing just until combined. Be careful not to overmix.

    Add White Chocolate and Macadamia Nuts:

    Fold in the white chocolate chips and chopped macadamia nuts until evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.

    Scoop and Shape Cookies:

    Using a cookie scoop or a spoon, drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving enough space between each cookie.


    Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden. The centers may still be soft but will firm up as they cool.

    Cool on Baking Sheets:

    Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.


    Once completely cooled, enjoy your soft and chewy White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies with a glass of milk or your favorite hot beverage.

    Feel free to adjust the quantity of white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts to suit your taste preferences. Happy baking!
