So good!! These cookies have always been a favorite and I happened to eat one at Subway the other day and it sent me on a mission to find a great recipe--and this is it! They are the best looking and tasting cookies I've ever made. Next time I will take them out a little sooner than I think they should--to make a softer cookie but even though I don't like cookies on the crispy side I love these! I'm so glad I tried this recipe first! I've made cookies with white chocolate chips before and the chopped white chocolate bar/almond bark makes a big difference!

I tried this recipe and the cookies tasted great, but they were much too thin and frail. They tended to fall apart when removing from the cookie sheet.

The best cookies I've ever made...we ate a whole sheet of them that night! I used baking powder instead of soda by accident and omitted the nuts.I also didn't chill the dough and even with minor changes they came out great.We took them out when the edges started to brown and they were perfect, I even overcooked one batch by 3-4 minutes and they were still very good.

This cookie was excellent!! Here's an idea for this recipe too: add in 10 oz. of Ghirardelli White Chocolate chips (instead of other white chocolate component) and add about 1 tbs. of fine grounds of macadamia nuts! It is delicious! Kids have fun making them too!

These cookies are a lot like the Subway cookie. Really good.

A very good recipe for White Chocolate Chunk and Macadamia cookies! I baked them 10-12 minutes to make them more chewy, rather than on the crispy side.

These are awesome. I use less than 10 ounces of chocolate... because that just seems excessive in relation to the amount of dough. I used 8 ounces this time. Whenever a recipe says to chill for on hour, I chill overnight. It doesn't hurt and it usually helps by making the cookies spread out less. Chilling overnight might help those who say they turned out too flat. I have made them twice and everyone loves them. Way better than the Subway ones, which I love!

My family loved these cookies...they did spread a little too much for my liking but that is b/c I missed the part about chilling the dough first.
