These were fantastic and easy to make. Like other reviews I doubled the recipe and used a tablespoon to scoop them out.

I found this recipe and gave it a try. Used Gluten free flour blend instead and baked them an extra 2min. Plus I made my cookies a little larger so had about 2 dozen. Soooooo good and chewy soft. Super simple recipe to follow. Thanks for sharing

I loved these. Thanks for posting it. Changes I made were as follows: doubled recipe, pecans instead of macadamia nuts, half all-purpose half white wheat, tablespoon rather than teaspoon scoop baking 13 minutes.Loved the crispy bottoms.

Excellent cookies, very easy to make. I took off one star because I made a double batch and only ended up with three and a half dozen cookies. They taste so good my mother, my son and his wife ate most of them!! Will definitely make them again.

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!!
