White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

My family loves these cookies!  My friends love these cookies!  I love these cookies! They are the closest thing I've found to Subway's white chocolate macadamia nut cookies.

I crave the cream cheese chocolate chip cookies that I've listed on this blog.  They are the perfect chocolate chip cookie in my opinion.  So, as I'm stuffing my face with a few of those delicious cookies and like a bolt of lighting it hits me!  Use the same recipe and add white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.  What I got was pure perfection!  I didn't anticipate that they would be so similar to Subway's though....but lucky me!  And you!  The texture is different than theirs.  But the taste is very close in my opinion.  I hope you like them as much as I do!

Let's get started:

White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies
Recipe inspired from Jenn
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
8oz package of cream cheese, softened
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
12oz bag of white chocolate chips
2 cups macadamia nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine and set aside until later.

Beat the cream cheese and the butter on medium speed until creamy and light, should take about 2 minutes.
Add the brown sugar and then mix well.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed and add the egg and vanilla. Beat on medium speed for 1 minute.
Slowly, add the flour mixture a little at a time, until well combined.
Fold in white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.
I suggest placing the dough in the freezer for a few hours. In my experience the cookies come out better. But, this step isn't necessary. Roll dough into walnut size balls then place on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 12 minutes, or until the edges are golden in your pre-heated oven. Let rest on cookie sheet for 5 minutes then move to a wire rack to cool completely.

Couldn't help myself!!

  1. Okay.. I'm hooked. Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite and then you made it better with Macadamia nuts! Now I'm drooling. : )

  2. I love the chocolate chip cookies but my family gets tired of them so I switched it up. These are just as good and the dough freezes well with these too. If you make them let me know what you think. Thanks!
