White chocolate is not one of my favourite things. It’s generally too sweet and blah and is just no comparison for real chocolate. Typically I like my cocoa dark and even slightly bitter.
Yet somehow, when it’s in chip form nestled into a buttery cookie with some salty macadamia nuts it just transforms itself. It goes from being blah to just perfectly creamy and wonderful and it brings out all of the best parts of macadamia nuts (already fabulous on its own) and really melts into the butter of the cookie itself. MmmMm.
White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies have always been a favourite for both Adam and me – it’s on the top of our list when getting something sweet at Starbucks or a local bakery. Yet somehow it’s never made it to our list of recipes as something we should make at home. Luckily after having some leftover macadamias from these awesome sundaes, and me having a a bit of a baking bug, Adam suggested we find a recipe. SOLD!
I stumbled upon this post from Whipped and based on her description of these being sublime, I knew it was worth a shot.
I made no changes at all to her recipe, so I’ll just guide you her way to try them for yourself. You won’t be disappointed!
