White chocolate macadamia cookies have always been my favorite cookie. There’s just something magical that happens when you get a bite of cookie with a macadamia nut and some white chocolate! The flavors are absolutely perfect together. I whipped up a batch of this recipe as well as my Toffee and Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies this weekend so my husband can have some on his work trip. He works out of state in the oil field and is gone for 3 weeks to a month at a time, so I like to send him away with some treats to remind him of home. I think I may have to start mailing him some goodies because from what he tells me they don’t last very long!
