White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies with soft and chewy centers and crispy edges are the best way to enjoy a cookie! The buttery cookie dough is a perfect match for the nuts and white chocolate!
These cookies freeze well either before or after baking. They are These perfect for picnics, lunchbox treats, or even an after-school snack to hold you off until dinner!
These cookies are one of Grumpy's favorite type of cookie to eat. Whenever he has a craving for a cookie he will ask for this recipe of for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies!
My recipe is a little different as I use one I found on allrecipes.com. Grumpy likes his cookies not crunchy. He likes them soft and chewy. These aren't really chewy, but they are soft. They are pretty darn good too as I am having a hard time leaving them alone.....although I have been good and only have eaten one today. I won't tell you how many I ate yesterday though.....
