  • Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition
  • Add the vanilla and beat to combine
  • Slowly add in the dry ingredients, mixing until combined

  • Chop up your macadamia nuts (it may be easiest with a food processor, but don’t chop them too small!)

  • Measure out the white chocolate chips
  • Add the chocolate and the macadamia nuts, gently stirring to combine

  • Form dough into balls and place on a baking sheet (either lined with parchment paper or greased and floured)
