  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. Cream together white sugar, light brown sugar and butter (do not use shortening). Stir in slightly beaten eggs and vanilla.
  3. Add flour mixture until just mixed. Stir in vanilla chips, macadamia nuts and dried cranberries.
  4. Drop dough on an ungreased cookie sheet by small scoop or rounded teaspoon. Bake in preheated oven until cookies are just set, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. Cookies will sink slightly.
  5. Variations: To make chocolate cookies, omit 1/2 cup flour and replace with 1/2 cup cocoa. To make refrigerator cookies: Roll dough into 2 rolls, wrap with plastic wrap and chill or freeze. (If you freeze the dough, thaw for at least 1/2 hour before cutting). Slice 1-inch slices; cut into 4 and place on baking sheet point up. For fancier cookies: Drizzle melted white chocolate on chocolate cookies and melted dark chocolate on the white cookie. Enjoy!

These cookies are amazing. I tell everybody how yummy they are but no seems too thrilled to try them. Once they do, they are hooked! Even my 6 year old loves em', nuts and all! You won't reg...

This is one of my all time favorite cookie recipes. Every time I make them, they disappear! I did find however that they take more like 15 minutes to bake.

5+++! Absolutely heavenly! I was looking for a macadamia nut recipe other than the normal cookies I bake. This one is a true winner. Not only do these look good, they are soft and taste buttery ...

This is now my favorite cookie recipe! These turned out perfect! (I used less than one cup of cranberries [Craisins, chopped] though)

These are great! I will make again great for sharing. I made them bigger about 2-TLBS rolled into a ball which made a nice sized cookie.

I took this cookie to several christmas cookie exchanges and each time received many,many compliments. Nice Christmas cookie since the cranberries add a nice holiday color. Very buttery and del...

When I sampled the dough before cooking, I felt something was lacking. I added about 1 cup of fruit punch to the recipe to moisten the dough and add a kick. My family, friends and I were very ...

A keeper! YUM! I omitted the cranberries this go around and added more nuts and chips. Delish! I've tried other white mac nut cookies...these are the best!!!
