White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

One of my favorite TV shows is 30 Rock. In one scene the main character is reminiscing about the good times with her ex-boyfriend and she mentions that most of the memories are "food related". I find myself hanging my head in shame when I realize that a lot of my good memories are indeed food related as well. This cookie recipe is no exception. Macadamia Nut cookies always remind me of High School with my best friend. We'd go on Subway (the sandwich shop) runs and we'd always come home with some of their delicious cookies. These were always my favorite. I couldn't believe that I had never made these cookies until now. They turned out soft and chewy and I ate at least a dozen by myself the first day. This is hands down my very favorite cookie recipe I have ever made. Now it can be yours too.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup macadamia nuts
1 cup white chocolate chips

Cream shortening, butter and sugars. Add eggs one at a time. Mix. Add vanilla. Combine flour, soda and salt. Add flour mixture to wet ingredients. Beat. Add nuts and chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 7-8 minutes.



  1. I also love these cookies (and remember them from Subway!). The only thing I hate is buying macadamia nuts, b/c they can get expensive!

  2. Yum! These look really good:)

  3. I love macadamia nuts! These cookies sound goood!

  4. I love these cookies too! I want one NOW! I'll have to save this one and get the ingredients on my next shopping trip. It's time to bake cookies again.

  5. Oh man, this is my favorite food ever. I will definitely make these (or wait for you to make them for me).
