  • 1 stick butter, softened 113 g
  • 1/2 cup tightly packed brown sugar, light or dark brown 100 g total
  • 1/4 cup white sugar 50 g
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour 220 g
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips or chunks 170g
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped macadamia nuts 60g


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, or a handheld mixer, cream together butter, brown sugar, and white sugar for 5 minutes on medium speed until light and fluffy.
  • Once five minutes is over, add in egg and vanilla and mix until combined.
  • In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, and salt, and mix until combined. Add these dry ingredients to the butter mixture on low speed, and mix until just combined.
  • Mix in chocolate chips or chunks and macadamia nuts until just combined. Place bowl of dough in fridge for at least 30 minutes to chill.
  • While dough is chilling, heat oven to 350F (180C). Portion dough out into heaped 1 tbsp-2 tbsp sized dough pieces on parchment paper lined baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown on the edges but still soft in the center. Cool until cookies firm up, then enjoy, still warm.



This recipe makes about 16-18 cookies, feel free to double it for more, I often do.
Leftover dough will keep for 5 days in the fridge, or can be frozen for up to 3 months.
