White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

I originally made this cookies for the kids to take to school for the bake sale.  Then my daughter told me it had to be homemade and with no nuts.  I had no more white chocolate left so we ended up baking more cookies using milk choc chips and skipped the nuts.  When I went to university (that was the time before I learnt baking cookies) I needed to walk pass the coffee shop to get on the bus in the city.  My eyes were always looking at the creamy yellowish cookies called melting moment.  If I had a few dollars to spare, I would buy one to pamper myself.  It's funny though I don't have the urge to learn how to make it that time until I become a mum.  Even my daughter can make melting moment and we don't buy cookies that much these days since we have discovered few good recipes.  Homemade cookies taste the best!

  1. Oh I want one so bad. I love these cookies and your recipe looks incredible. thanks for sharing!

  2. wow..Thats lovely cookies,home made are always better...

  3. Totally agree...homemade is the best. You can twist the recipe and add anything you like to suit your family. Best of all, what can beat freshly baked cookies? In shops, the cookies might've been sitting way too long before you bought them.

  4. Can I have one please? They look delicious!! Thanks for the recipe!
