White baking chips and macadamia nuts are a fantastic duo in these buttery cookies. They are a nice change from the classic chocolate chip ones. —Cathy Lennon, Newport, Tennessee

"Stop looking! This is the best White Chocolate Macadamia Cookie you will find! As a volunteer field editor I have tried many cookie recipes. This is a keeper. My recommendation is to double the recipe and make the cookies a little larger. Also, be certain to only use slightly softened butter. As with all my cookies, I made the dough then let it chill in the fridge for an hour. This will guarantee super soft cookies that are loaded with nuts and chips!"

"Another blast from the past. I am not one to bake, but on a rainy day in Tampa, I decided to go for it.. and these cookies are SO easy, so good that as a volunteer field editor I would recommend them and will definitely make them again.. but I won't wait until it rains to do so!!"

"not sure what happened here. I used shortening instead of butter and these cookies were a big flop. . not only did they stick to pan but they were very thin. didn't make the yielded amount either. I think it should have called for more flour is my guess. disappointed because the ingredients are expensive."

"I got 28 cookies out of this with a 1" cookie scoop. Cookies were very good. I didn't have white chocolate baking chips so I made my own out of a Ghirardelli white chocolate baking bar, same thing I guess."

"Very simple and very tasty. I used a cookie scoop and it only made 2 dozen but simple enough to double. My son loved them!"
