tasty way to start your day: white chocolate macadamia nut cookies


though i am no longer eating gluten, i still love to get my bake on! being in the kitchen is so therapeutic for me, i am able to get away from all of those little things that are bugging me, work with my hands, and make something delicious. i have been baking cookies for several years and it is a known fact that at our house we always have cookies on hand. so to start off the week right i thought i would share some one of chad's favorite type of cookie, white chocolate macadamia nut. this recipe is one that i have modified over the years to make the perfect cookie, enjoy!

white chocolate macadamia nut cookies:

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts

1. cream the butter, shortening and sugars
2. add eggs and vanilla and beat well
3. add the sifted dry ingredients, mix until well blended, and do not over mix!
4. add the chocolate chips and nuts. drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheets
5. bake at 350 until golden brown, about 8-12 minutes
6. enjoy them with a glass of milk!

**hint if you ever think "how in the world am i ever going to eat all of these cookies" i always bake, let the cookies cool, and then zip lock packs of cookies and put them in the freezer. they keep so well and that way whenever in a pinch, you can grab a bag of cookies that still taste super fresh!**

**also note in the photo is regular chocolate chips, i threw away the white chocolate bag before i had taken this picture, oops!:)**


  1. Yum! Ghiradelli chips are the best. I love baking for a lot of the same reasons you described.

  4. Oh-em-gee! They look amaze-balls
