Dear TRB,


Do you happen to have a good recipe for white chocolate macadamia nut cookies? They’re my boyfriend’s favorite, and I was hoping to make them for him as a special treat. Perhaps you could post the recipe on your site?

Best wishes,
“Jackie”

Well, Jackie, you’ve certainly come to the right place! If there’s something TRB isn’t short on, it’s cookie recipes!

In that spirit, there are a few ways you could tackle this challenge:
  • Using TRB‘s much-revered Toll House Recipe, substitute light brown sugar for dark brown sugar; white chocolate chips for semi-sweet chocolate chips; and 1 cup of chopped macadamia nuts for walnuts. (Bet your boyfriend will love these! Check out the photo – above left).
But, if you are looking for a recipe that has a bit more “gourmet” flair, why not try a twist on the traditional recipe?
  • The Complete Magnolia Bakery Cookbook contains a fantastic recipe for White Chocolate Coconut Macadamia Cookies. The big difference here: The Magnolia bakers add a little milk to the dough along with 1 cup of shredded coconut.
Want to add some “healthy” mix-ins like oats and raisins?
  • Try Martha Stewart’s White Chocolate-Chunk cookies. To satisfy your boyfriend’s craving, just substitute 1 cup of chopped macadamia nuts for walnuts.
So really, Jackie, the most important question now is: Which recipe will you choose? Let us know – we’d love to come over and sample some of your creations!
