Cookies are one of my very favorite things to bake. And not just during the holiday season either. I love cookies all year round. There’s nothing like a homemade cookie fresh from the oven. Yum!

I had a hard time deciding which cookie recipe I should post today. I narrowed it down to two, but couldn’t eliminate either one. So I am sharing one today and one tomorrow. 🙂

These white chocolate macadamia nut cookies are stepped up a notch with Craisins, which I love, especially around Christmas time. They add a nice festive color that just makes everything more pretty. Plus they taste yummy. (Well, not to some of my boys. I leave them out of their cookies, the crazies.) Anyway, here is my cookie recipe. Enjoy!!

White Chocolate Nut Macadamia Cookies with Cranberries

1 1/4 cups soft butter or margarine
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cups vanilla or white chips
1 cup coarsely chopped macadamia nuts (or pecans)
1 cup Craisins
Cream butter and brown sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients, then chips, nuts, and craisins. Drop by rounded spoonfuls on lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to cooling racks.

-These are also fabulous with 1 tsp orange zest added to the dough.



  1. Those look SO delicious!!!

    • Thanks! They really are quite addicting. Thankfully my boys have finished most of them off, because I can’t seem to stay away from them. 🙂
