- Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring until a dough forms. Fold in the white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts until they're evenly distributed throughout the dough.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookie
- 12 tablespoons butter 1.5 sticks melted and cooled for 5 minutes
- 1 cup brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 cup macadamia nuts lightly chopped if you'd like
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, beat the melted butter and sugars together with an electric mixer (or stand mixer) on medium speed until smooth and light and fluffy in color, around 5 minutes. The mixture will be very noticeably lighter in color.
- Beat in the egg, yolk, and vanilla until combined.
- Reduce the speed to low and slowly add half the flour, the salt and baking soda, and then the second half of the flour. Mix in the chips and nuts until incorporated.
- Working with 1 large tablespoons of dough at a time, roll them into balls and place them on a cookie sheet (lined with parchment paper or a baking mat) about 2 inches apart.
- Bake the cookies until the edges are set and beginning to brown but the middles are still soft and puffy, around 10-12 minutes.
- Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to let cool completely.
- Repeat with remaining dough.
- To freeze this cookie dough, simple form it into balls and stick them in a single layer in a zipper-topped bag or an airtight freezer-safe container and freeze. Place the frozen cookie dough balls on your baking-mat-lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Hot cookies on demand will change your life!
- These freeze very well. I normally make a double batch and freeze half.
- When I double the recipe I do 3 eggs instead of 2 eggs and 2 yolks because that's simpler for me. They turn out great.
Overall, it's the combination of the different flavors and textures that makes White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies so good. They offer a perfect blend of sweet, creamy, crunchy, and nutty flavors, making them a popular treat that many people love.
