Easy White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

I made these cookies on a lazy Sunday afternoon, they mix up quick and easy.

  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ½ cup shortening
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅛ teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 and ½ cups white flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 and ½ cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
  1. Partially melt the butter. There should still be chunks, but about 75% melted. Add to a large bowl with the shortening.
  2. Using hand mixers, beat in the brown sugar and the white sugar.
  3. Beat in the egg, egg yolk, vanilla, and almond extract.
  4. Add in the flour, salt, and baking soda and mix until just combined. Do not over-mix.
  5. Gently stir in the white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.
  6. Cover the bowl tightly and chill for 1 to 8 hours.
  7. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a pan with parchment paper or use a nonstick liner.
  8. Roll balls of dough into tall cylindrical balls. Place 6-8 cookie balls on a sheet to give the cookies plenty of room.
  9. Bake for 8-12 minutes erring on the side of under-baking which keeps them soft and chewy!
  10. Remove from the oven and press a few additional chocolate chips or macadamia nuts in the top if desired (makes them look pretty).
