White chocolate macadamia nut cookies


Makayla George, Reporter

Baking has always been one of my favorite things to do. One year, my great-grandma made me some cookies and they were the best things I’ve ever tried. I had to ask her how she made them so she taught me this fun and simple recipe.  


  • 2 ¼ cups unsifted flour 
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup butter 
  • ¼ cup sugar 
  • ¾ cup brown sugar 
  • 1 tsp vanilla 
  • 1 package vanilla instant pudding 
  • 2 eggs 
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips 
  • 1 cup chopped nuts 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium-sized bowl, dump in flour, baking soda, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla instant pudding. Mix thoroughly. Once fully combined, add in vanilla and eggs. 

In a small bowl, melt butter. Once completely melted, gradually add into the bowl of dry ingredients. Slowly add in chopped nuts and white chocolate chips. Mix thoroughly.

Once the mixture is smooth, roll into one-inch balls and place on a baking sheet roughly two inches apart. 

Put the baking sheet in the oven at 350 degrees for 8-12 minutes, or until golden brown. Let stand for 2-5 minutes before removing from the baking sheet.
