White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

Pin It White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies



I am a big fan of White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies. The texture of the cookie is chewy and combined with the crunch from the macadamia nuts, and the sweetness of the white chocolate chips make it a perfect combo. While I was baking the cookies, the aroma from the oven reminded me of my late teen years when I worked at Mrs. Fields Cookies. I worked there for a few years and loved the smell of the cookies as they baked. Eating a warm one really brought me back to that time in my life. Working at Mrs. Fields was a fun job and maybe why so many years later, I love to bake. See recipe below.
