White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Hey! I don’t know about you guys, but I have extreme cabin fever. I’m so so tired of the cold, and of course this past week has been the first time we’ve actually had heavy snow. On the other hand, that means snow days! And what is more fun than baking some delicious cookies on a day you have off? To me, there’s nothing better!

So, this snow day I decided to make some white chocolate macadamia nut cookies! I really love when cookies have nuts in them, it’s that difference in texture that has made me fall in love. These are my dad’s favorite kind of cookie, and I definitely know why! Soft cookie + creamy white chocolate + crunchy macadamia nuts, it’s the perfect combination in my book. These really are the perfect treat for a snow day and are guaranteed to be a huge hit with family and friends!
