White Chocolate & Macadamia Cookies

White Chocolate & Macadamia Cookies

These White Chocolate & Macadamia Cookies are based on a really simple cookie dough recipe. It’s totally fool-proof. Plus, you’ll end up with perfectly ‘crispy on the outside’ and ‘soft on the inside’ bikkies… which is definitely the way to go!

White Chocolate & Macadamia Cookies

I like to leave my macadamias pretty chunky, but you can chop them as roughly or as finely as you like (I just halve them).

And then it’s just a matter of adding in the yummy little white chocolate chips. If I’m being honest, I usually add a few extra than what the recipe says… but that’s just because I know that I’ll eat a whole heap while I’m rolling the dough into balls (yes, yes, I’m a terrible person – I just LOVE eating cookie dough!).

White Chocolate & Macadamia Cookies

These cookies make a perfect mid-afternoon treat, a great biscuit tin filler or a yummy pressie for a friend. And hey, if you’re the kind of person that likes to bake your friends cookies, then we SOOOO need to meet!! I’m more than happy for anyone to bake me cookies!!! Hehe! xx
