Recipe: White Chocolate & Macadamia Cookies

In a world of fancy, dainty desserts and perfectly shaped macarons I think there’s something satisfying about a chunky, lopsided cookie. These are almost impossible to get wrong and can be as big or small as you like – they can even be more uniform in shape and size if that’s your style (clearly it’s not mine!). The combination of white chocolate and macadamia might not be earth shatteringly new, but it’s a classic for a reason. The mix of sweet white chocolate and a salty hit of macadamia is pretty perfect, and you can whip these up in under half an hour – perfect for that mid morning snack!

Ingredients List

  • 125g butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg (lightly beaten)
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 3/4 cup macadamia nuts
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

      Thanks! Usually when I feel like a cookie I want it right away, so anything that can be whipped up fast and doesn’t require any dainty work is right up my alley!

      Thanks Stephanie! The more lopsided and choc-full the better I reckon!

    I love cookies, no matter what the shape is … it’s a good flavour combination what counts. I appreciate something with peanut butter, but … hm … with nuts is fine, especially your white chocolate and macadamia combination.

      I actually don’t love peanut butter so barely use it, but my boyfriend does so maybe I should experiment with some flavour options for him!
