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.

- 1 cup white all purpose unbleached flour

This is so delightfully delicious! I have macadamia nuts in our pantry and you’ve just inspired me! So glad you’re a part of our Cookie Swap! So much fun, right?! So glad you’re a part of it–makes it even more special!
You totally have to make these! Can’t wait to hear how your kids love them.
Who DOESN’T get happy from cookie swaps? I’ve been doing them every year for about three years, and they’re amazing.
I have not done too many cookie swaps before, but now I am hooked! So much fun.
Cookie swaps are the best idea in the history of cookies. I have gotten some majorly awesome cookies through those things.
Cookie swaps are really a genius idea. I love getting to know new neighbors through a swap too!
I loved participating in cookie exchanges! Sadly, now that I’m gluten free I can’t. I do love making fresh cookies and enjoy taking recipes like this one and adapting them to be gluten free!
What if you did an online gluten free swap? I know a few friends who are gluten free too. It would be awesome!
Those cookies look so yummy. I absolutely love macadamia nuts because it makes me think I am back in Hawaii and not in cold and blustery Chicago.
Oh thank you for sharing! I have been looking for a White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookie recipe that we could make. I’ll definitely be trying your recipe!
Awesome! I am so glad that I posted what you were looking for. Please let me know how your family likes them!
Just looking at it – I know this is going to be yummy and delicious indeed! I may have to try out this recipe soon.
I hope you will try this cookie recipe, it is so delicious!
I love macadamia nuts in cookies, they are so yummy. I never thought to mix it with white chocolate before but that sounds prefect! Thanks for sharing!
Macadamia and white chocolate is my favorite flavor combination, you must try it!
Yum! My kind of dessert! Cookie swapping sounds like a lot of fun. Never tried it yet. 🙂 Anyway, thanks for the recipe!
Cookie swaps are so much fun, you should plan one in your neighborhood. Each person makes one kind of cookie and then you bring an empty platter and walk around the table and fill it up with all the different kinds of cookies, even though you only had to make one flavor!
A cookie swap? That sounds awesome! It’s a great way to try a variety of cookie flavors/options!
Right? You only need to make one flavor, but you get to try so many more! Cookie swaps are awesome!
These are so great, My two boys would really want this for sure. Thanks for the recipe.
I hope you can make these for your boys.
I used to do cookie swaps with bloggers but a lot of the programs I went through have shut down. I love baking and sharing. I might have to look in to doing it again next season.
I think a blogger cookie swap would be so much fun! I am totally participating if someone organizes it.
Those look so good. I need to make them for my husband. This is his favorite kind of cookies!
I hope your husband enjoys these delicious cookies!
Is a cookie swap as good as it sounds? How come no one does them around me?
I think you should start a cookie swap! It is very easy. Plan a day when you can get together with your friends and neighbors. Each person signs up to make1-2 kinds of cookies. Each person brings the platter and an empty platter and you walk around and create a platter filled with all the different kinds! It is really easy and so much fun.
You had me at cookies. Yum! Your white chocolate chip macadamia cookies look so good. Need to try them soon!
I hope you will try this recipe, it is so good!
