White Chocolate and Macadamia Cookies

The birthday season is over for now. Back to my all time favourite - cookies :) I made these for a picnic in the park. They're really simple to make and taste delicious. I don't usually like white chocolate but the combination of macadamia nut and white chocolate is amazing. 

adding nuts and choc chips 

cookie dough

125g butter, softened
225g soft brown sugar (I only used 150g)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
225g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
200g white chocolate chips
150g macadamia nuts, roughly chopped

  • Preheat the oven to 180C. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Beat the butter and sugar together in a large bowl until pale and creamy.
  • Add the egg and vanilla extract and stir to combine,
  • Combine the flour, baking powder and salt together in a separate bowl and stir into the butter mixture until just combined.
  • Fold through the chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.
  • Place heaped tablespoonfuls of the mixture on the preheated baking sheet, leaving a little space between them to allow for spreading. 
  • Bake for 15-20minutes, or until lightly golden.
  • Allow to cool on the sheets for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely. 


  1. These look great! I have some macadamia nuts in my pantry that I need to use up, and I think this is the recipe for it!

  2. a dreamy combination of ingredients! They look delish.
