These cookies were great! I didn't change a thing, and they were just perfect. I got about 36 average-sized cookies out of this recipe, and each one was delectable. I have tried other recipes which include brown sugar, and have determined that brown sugar has too bold a flavor for the delicate white chocolate and macadamia nuts. Trust me-- this recipe is absolutely fabulous. UPDATE: My husband and I love these cookies so much that we make the dough, freeze the uncooked dough balls on a cookie sheet, put them in a zip-lock bag, and keep a supply handy at all times. Whenever we crave them, we'll pop a few out of the bag and bake at 350 for about 15-18 minutes. Awesome.


Great base recipe - I only made minor adjustments to make them delicious. First, I doubled the recipe excep kept the chocolate/nuts measurements the same. Second, I made it 1 tbsp vanilla. Third, I added 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Then I chilled the dough for about 10-15 min before scooping. I baked at 350 for 10 min in my oven until the edges were just brown. They didn't spread much at all, weren't too cakey, and were absolutely devine the next day.


Very good cookies. I tested two different cookie sheets and they turned out soft and moist on the airbake cookie sheet, and on the dark metal cookie sheet they didn't spread at all and turned out crunchy.
