White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies


White chocolate chips were invented by Nestle in the 30’s, but macadamia nuts weren’t available to the public until 1975. Sometime after that these delicious flavors found each other, and history was made. 

I just love Macadamia Nuts and putting them in cookies is Amazing.

Plus these are Santa’s favorite cookies, so make sure save some for him too.

Yes, once you make the dough you can freeze in into small balls in the fridge for up to 3 months. Covered of course, then simply defrost them and smash them down before baking.

The key is the ingredient ratio; along with using butter and shortening in the recipe. So be sure to follow this one to a tea and you will be sure to have the best cookies this time of year.

Christmas is just right around the corner, so I am getting my holiday baking done early this time. That way I have plenty of time to do all the other things that are at hand.

Notes: After cookies are completely cooled, place in airtight container or plastic freezer bag.  Keep the dough refrigerated if you are going to be making these in batches.
