These White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies are salty, sweet, and a crowd favorite. One of my most requested cookies, they’re filled with white chocolate chips and salty, toasted macadamia nuts. Best of all, this uses my favorite cookie dough base which makes the perfect soft and chewy cookie.
One day while browsing the baking ingredients at the grocery store, I came across these Mauna Loa toasted macadamia nut pieces. I had to give them a whirl, and I’m so glad I did. They made a world of difference in my cookies. You’ll love them because there is no toasting needed, you can pour them right into your dough. So easy!
If you have raw macadamia nuts, they will work just fine. If you’d like to toast them for some extra depth of flavor, it only takes a few minutes. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees. Place your macadamia nuts on a lined baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 10-15 minutes, stirring once halfway through. Watch carefully to prevent burning. Allow to cool before adding nuts to your dough.
