These cookies are the perfect amount of soft, chewy, nutty and chocolatey! They are sweet with brown sugar and white chocolate but with a balance of buttery, crunchy macadamia nuts. A cookie recipe you’ll want to keep on hand!


Units Scale
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2/3 cups white sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon each baking powder and baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup macadamia nuts
  • 1 1/2 cups roughly chopped white chocolate (I use Lindt chocolate)


  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside (if you have two baking sheets, line both, it will make your life easier).
  2. In a stand mixer add butter and sugars together, beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time and continue to beat until creamy and pale in colour. Add vanilla.
  3. In a sparate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. Add to your butter mixture in 2 additions.
  4. Now add your nuts and chopped chocolate, mix until combined.
  5. Roll approximately 1 tablespoon sized balls and place on to your prepared baking sheet. Space each ball 1-2 inches apart. Lightly flatten each ball with the palm of your hand.
  6. Bake in the centre of the oven for approx. 8-10 minutes. Do not overbake! Take the cookies out just before you think they are done and let them continue to bake on the sheet for an extra 2 minutes (if you overbaked them, do not let the cookies rest on cookie sheet, remove immediately). Remove cookies from the baking sheet to a cooling rack. They should be soft and a little gooey in the middle.


You can freeze the cookie dough to make cookies at a later time. See notes in the blog for direction on how to do this.

Store cookies in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
