Macadamia Nut White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Elaine Bovender


One of our customers where I used to work would send our department a big box of these cookies from her local bakery every Christmas. They were so delicious, rich and buttery and our department just loved them. This recipe is as close as I could come to those wonderful cookies. They make great gifts or just enjoy them yourself. I hope you'll try this recipe.
