The quintessential recipe for White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies that will have you swooning!!!
I’m a sucker for cookies. I think you all know that. I’m also a push over for any treat which features white chocolate, too. So when my friend, Kate, over at Diethood, posted her version of these White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies, I knew I had to recreate them. She left the nuts out, but I put them right back in. Of course, for the nut-phobic husband, I made half with just white chocolate chunks.
I packaged up the nutty version and trekked across the Midwest to my high school reunion. I loved their questions…”Did you make these?” and “Is there butter in these?”as well as,”When will these be on your blog?” Yes, a LOT and soon were my answers. I even got some of the health nuts to partake…they’re worth a few extra minutes on the treadmill!
