I just love making cookies especially for my family. White chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies is one of my husband's favorite type cookies, so when I decided to make these because I couldn't eat milk chocolate while breast-feeding he was delighted. They are delicious and to die for! They bake up nice and big, not flat and are moist long after baking them! Carefull making them with your kids because he/she will want to eat them all before your done! The type of pudding you use is optional to. I am going to try this with white chocolate pudding!
Preheat oven to 350°F. Beat in a large bowl the vanilla, eggs, shortening, margarine or butter, and sugars until creamy. Add salt and baking soda. Then add pudding mix. Mix in flour slowly untill completely blended . Add white chocolate chips and nuts, blend well with spoon.
Drop 1 to 3 tablespoonfuls of cookie dough (depending on what size of cookie you like) on an ungreased cookie sheet about 1 to 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown. I usually spray my cookie sheet with nonstick spray just in case.
Set aside to cool for 5 to 10 minutes and then enjoy!
