Chewy White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies on Cooling rack

Soft Chewy White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

These White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies are soft, thick, chewy and everything that make a cookie absolutely perfect!  Made with simple ingredients, in the perfect combination they bring so much flavor into this fail-proof cookie recipe.


  • 1.5 c butter softened
  • 1 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 bag white chocolate chips
  • 1 C macadamia nuts


  • Cream the butter and sugars with an electric mixer until light and creamy. Add in the eggs one at a time, then mix in the vanilla until combined.
  • In a separate bowl, sift the flour, corn starch, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add this mixture to the wet ingredients and mix between each addition.
  • Once the dough is together, mix in the macadamia nuts and white chocolate by hand until evenly distributed. Scoop by heaping rounded tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet 2 in apart.
  • Bake at 350˚F for 9-11 minutes or until the center is just set. Let cool on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes then transfer to a wire cooling rack.

Recipe Notes:

The dough should not be sticky. If the dough is sticky, add flour 1-2 tbsp at a time mixing well until the dough does not stick to your finger.
To bake these properly, make sure that the center is just set, but they aren't browned across the whole cookie.  The cookies will continue to bake as they cool so if they are already done when they come out, they will end up overdone as they sit and cool.
