White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies have always been a favorite of mine. I don't know where I received this recipe from. The macadamia nuts are expensive but worth it.


1 1/2 cups softened unsalted butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 ounces high quality white chocolate, coarsely chopped
6 ounces salted macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl cream the butters and sugars together. Add the eggs and vanilla extract.
In a medium bowl whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in the flour mixture slowly. Fold in the white chocolate chunks and macadamias.
Drop by the tablespoonful 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until set. Cookies should not brown. Cool on the cookie sheet for 3 minutes, and then transfer to wire racks. Store in airtight containers or freeze.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
