This Macadamia & White Chocolate Cookie Recipe is moist, chewy and truly delicious. I have a macadamia nut tree that has grown well since my previous post but not yet producing any nuts. My neighbours have a tree that does produce and drops some of its nuts on my side of the fence giving me a late winter treat. Usually I just gobble up my harvest but this year I decided to try making something with them that would last a little longer.
See my previous post for more information on harvesting and drying macadamias, and my favourite nut-cracker for macadamias. Dry, crack open and roast your macadamia nut harvest in preparation for making this recipe.
