Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

chocolate macadamia cookies

I was at the bulk store this weekend and a big bin of macadamia nuts caught my eye. Hmmm. A little pricey, but I bet they’d be great in some cookies! I’ve never actually made macadamia cookies, though I’ll admit to eating more than a few over the years.

I decided to try a well-rated recipe from All Recipes for my first attempt at Chocolate Macadamia Cookies, only to discover half way through the recipe that I was a wee bit short of white chocolate. (Missing chocolate seems to happen a lot in this household *looking suspiciously at teenage daughter*). Anyway, I had a lot of bittersweet chips so I threw them in with the chopped white chocolate.

I really liked these cookies, especially after they had sat for a few hours and the flavours really developed. They are light in colour and texture with a sugar-cookie like cookie and hits of chocolate and nuts. Very satisfying! I think next time, I might try half white sugar/half brown sugar for a bit more depth to the cookie part, but that’s just my preference. I suggest trying both ways as it gives you an excuse to make these cookies a couple of times :)

  1. Sounds delish! How much butter though?

    • Oops. Sorry about that. I’ve edited the recipe to include, but it’s 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature. Thanks for letting me know.

  2. Thanks Steph. We’re down to our last cookie here. I’m pretty sure we’ll be going through withdrawal :)

  3. They were yum, Memoria. I’ll be making them again, for sure!

  4. These cookies look beautiful. YUM!
