White Chocolate Cherry Macadamia Cookies

22 Jan

Rafe and I have been making cookie dough, and balling up the dough and freezing it, so that whenever we want cookies, we can just toss a few of the balls into the oven and have like 4 or 6, instead of a gazillion. It’s really nice to be able to just say, on a random, Tues night, I want cookies, and be able to make them… So I made a batch this afternoon, and just baked 6 for us to have today, and froze the rest.

Anyway, this is one of the kinds of cookies that we made to give out in our out-of-town gift bags for our wedding. I love these. Hands down, my favorite cookie variety.


  • 1/2 c butter (1 stick)
  • 1/2 c splenda sugar blend (or 1 c regular sugar)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 c flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • dash salt
  • 1/2 c dried cherries
  • 1/2 c white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 c chopped macadamia nuts


  • Preheat to 325
  • Cream butter and sugar with electric beater. Add in egg and vanilla, continue to beat.
  • Whisk dry ingredients together (flour, baking soda, salt)
  • Mix the dry ingredients into the wet, a little at a time.
  • Then fold in the cherries, chocolate chips, and nuts.
  • Bake for 10-12 min or until slightly golden.
