PUMPKIN White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Pumpkin Macadamia Nut Cookie

Pumpkin White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies are super soft, chewy with a spiced sweetness, but also have a bit of saltiness from the macadamia nuts. The balance is perfect and super addictive! You’ll find yourself going back for more and more…and more! 

Cookie Bite

These cookies are downright addicting which is super dangerous to my waistline because one is never enough! White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies are fabulous on their own (my absolute favorite cookie ever), but add pumpkin and spice and everything nice, and a cookie that’s already the best gets even better! The white chocolate chunks are amazing and the macadamia nuts add such an amazing crunch!

When it’s pumpkin spice season you expect pumpkin spice and these cookies deliver. They are heavy on the spice, but it balances so well with the white chocolate and macadamia nuts. They are moist and chewy and dense.

Making these fabulous cookies!

First off, gather all your ingredients, turn on your oven (350 degrees Fahrenheit) and get out your mixer.

Macadamia nut cookie ingredients

Step 1: Cream the butter and sugar together. It is important to mix well so you won’t have any butter lumps in your batter.

Step 3: Next, add the pumpkin. During this step I also add the salt, baking soda, pumpkin spice and cinnamon as well.

Step 4: Add the flour to the mixture. Mix just until incorporated.

Step 5: Lastly, add the white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts and mix in with a spatula or large spoon.

Step 6: Take a cookie scoop and place on a lightly oiled baking sheet one inch apart. Place in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes.

Step 7: Check your cookies and take them out of the oven. I slightly under-bake them to keep in more moisture keeping them soft and chewy.
