Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies

I had some left over chocolate chips from the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies I made on Saturday.  I thought, what would be better than a good old fashioned Chocolate Chip Cookie?  So I decided to make them and instead of adding walnuts I would add Macadamia nuts.  The nuts we brought back from our honeymoon in Kona, HI.  I searched and searched for the perfect recipe.  I still think that the Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe in The Pilsbury Complete Book of Baking is the best, but this recipe is pretty close.  I found the recipe at

Prep Time: 20 Mins
Cook Time: 10-12 Mins
Ready in: 1 Hour
Servings: 48

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons hot water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped macadamia nuts, or other nuts
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees for a soft chewy cookie.  If you do not want a chewy cookie (these are my favorite) preheat to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.
  3. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Add to batter along with salt. Stir in flour, chocolate chips, and nuts.
  4. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans.
  5. Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.
Voila!  Finished product.  These are so good, I guarantee they will disappear faster than you can bake them.
