Mom's Favorite White Chocolate and Macadamia Nut Cookies

Here is another go-to / no-fail cookie recipes. This includes the chocolate chip cookies, the chocolate chocolate chip cookies, and these white chocolate macadamia nut cookies.

But first, Happy Birthday Mom!! (Yes, her birthday was in April, I'm a little behind in my posts!)

Back to baking. These are straight forward cookies and can be made easily enough with or without the nuts. Macadamia nuts are quite pricey.

I actually leave this recipe alone and don't make any changes. I only put about 12 per cookie sheet as they do spread a little bit. I also use my mini cookie scoop most of the time.

These cookies freeze well. Put the cooled cookies into a container or a bag and put in the freezer. To defrost put the bag in the fridge or let it defrost on the counter.
