These White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies are buttery, chewy, and a delicious treat. Made with nutty macadamia nuts and melt in your mouth white chocolate, these white chocolate cookies are seriously addicting!



  • 3/4 cup (170 g) butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup (56 g) canola oil
  • 1 cup (220 g) dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup (220 g) granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups (375 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups (300 g) white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup (128 g) macadamia nuts, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place the softened butter and oil into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add the two sugars and beat on low speed until light and creamy, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla extract to the butter/sugar mixture. Beat well to combine.
  4. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to the butter mixture and mix on low speed until a dough forms.
  5. Finally, add the white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts. Mix on low until they are evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.
  6. Use a medium cookie scoop to drop 1 1/2 tablespoon-sized dough balls onto parchment lined baking sheets. Place the cookie dough balls 2 inches apart (no more than 8 cookies per tray).
  7. Bake the cookies in your preheated oven for 11-12 minutes.
  8. Allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
