If you’re in the mood for soft, Macadamia nut cookies, then you’ll love this quick and easy recipe. These cookies are very soft and chewy and bursting with delicious Macadamia nuts.

How to Make Macadamia Nut Cookies

Gather all of your ingredients. I prefer to pre-measure everything to ensure I have everything that I’ll need.

In a medium-size bowl cream the butter with the brown and white sugar.


Add the eggs, and both extracts beating together until creamy.


Next, add the vanilla pudding mix.


Beat the mixture on medium until the pudding mix is fully incorporated and the cookie dough has a whipped frosting-like texture.


Add the flour and baking soda, mixing well.


The resulting dough is smooth and creamy.


Stir in the chopped macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips.


Drop by tablespoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet. We actually use a cookie dough scoop to make perfectly even cookies.

Bake for exactly 11 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool 8-10 minutes before transferring from cookie sheet.

Slice & Bake Macadamia Nut Cookies

If you’d like to make the cookie dough ahead of time, these can be formed into dough logs and frozen for creating slice and bake cookies.

Once the dough is formed, overturn it onto a very lightly floured surface. Use a dough scraper or your hands to lightly shape the dough into a log, rolling it gently to ensure it’s an even thickness throughout.

Wrap the log in parchment paper and freeze until solid. If you have a large family, leave the log intact and wrap it tightly with freezer wrap, plastic wrap, or vacuum seal it.

If you have a smaller household, cut the log into halves or thirds, and wrap each section. Return to the freezer until you’re ready for fresh delicious Macadamia nut cookies!

Slice & Bake Directions

Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Remove the frozen log section and cut it into 1/2″ slices. Place them 2″ apart on a Silpat or parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes.
