Notes

  • Soften your butter before using it so that it combines well and you get an even texture. I like to take it out of the fridge about an hour before I want to start making them.
  • Don't over-mix the cookie dough when you add in the flour. This can overdevelop the gluten leading to heavy cookies.
  • These cookies only take about 10 minutes to bake, so keep your eye on them. They are done when the tops are solid and the edges are very slightly golden brown.
  • Cool the cookies on a wire rack. This allows the air to circulate around them so that they don't get soggy.
Storage: Store white chocolate macadamia nut cookies in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Freeze for up to 3 months.
