White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies

Post divider

I have great memories of these cookies from Subway. They were my go-to in high school. I would inhale a footlong cold cut, tuck into two cookies, and think I was making the healthy decision – haha! Oh to be a teenager again!

There’s no question; White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies are a totally guilty pleasure. I know y’all love cookie recipes so I thought I would chuck this one in the mix for you! Soft, chewy, with the perfect amount of crunch, I think you are going to enjoy these ones! Give them a try and let me know what you think!

Again, don’t shy away from the chocolate. If you are going to have a cookie…have a cookie!

Ready in: 35 mins
Prep: 20
Servings: 15-20


  • 15 tbsp of room temperature butter (bonus points if you use room temp brown butter)
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup roughly chopped macadamia nuts


  1. Cookie time! Let's go! Okay first up, let's add the flour, salt, and baking soda into a bowl and give it a little whisk. Set aside.
  2. Next up, in the bowl of a stand mixer, add in the butter, sugars, and vanilla. Using a paddle attachment, turn machine onto medium speed and let beat away for 2 minutes. Next up add in the eggs and mix on high for 2 minutes.
  3. Now turn the mixture to low and slowly incorporate the flour mixture. Don't overwork the dough here. Mix just until dry ingredients are fully incorporated.
  4. Fold in white chocolate chips and nuts with a spoon or spatula.
  5. Preheat oven to 375 and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  6. Using an ice cream scoop or a spoon, scoop balls of dough and place on the baking sheets. Each cookie ball should be around 3 tbsp. Again, if we are going to have a cookie, let's have a cookie.
  7. Next up, pop the whole sheet pan in the freezer. I like to let the dough firm up a little bit; 5-10 minutes is fine. After freezer time, pop the cookies in the oven for 11-14 mins.
  8. Once cookies are golden, remove from the oven and let cool on pan for 5 mins. Remove cookies from pan and let fully cool on a rack. Now...EAT!!!
