When my friend, Jasmine, invited me to her Cookie Swap last week, how could I say no? We make cookies, as part of our school lunch, almost every day. School cookies are always a bit healthy and are definitely nut free. For our cookie swap today I made the cookies at home and I was able to add in macadamia nuts. Sure, macadamia nuts are expensive, but a little goes a long way. I love combining white chocolate chips with macadamia nuts. They both make a lovely flavor combination. These cookies are not healthy, but since I made them for a cookie swap I put aside my usual healthy rules.
White chocolate chip Macadamia nut Cookies are perfect for your cookie swap
And now for the recipe. This recipe was inspired by one that was passed down to me by my Grandmother. She loved to create delicious cookies with chips and nuts in them. The macadamia nuts are so soft and delicious that my nut-hating daughter ate two of them and said they were the best cookie ever. When I told her they had nuts she did not believe me.
