White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Normally I am not a fan of white chocolate.  Until I made these cookies that is.  It seems to be the one place I have found where white chocolate makes a perfect ingredient.  The payoff is a cookie that is slightly chewy, with a crunch from the wonderful macadamia nuts, and a delightful sweetness of the white chocolate. I was super glad I moved out of my comfort zone and tried a white chocolate recipe.  These are easily a new favorite sweet for me.

Taste Appreciation with Age: Chocolate Chip Walnut Chunk Cookies

As I kid I hated all nuts except maybe honey roasted peanuts. As a young adult I started eating and enjoying varieties of nuts such as almonds, cashews, and macadamia. But it wasn’t until just a few years ago that I finally learned to love pecans and walnuts. Walnuts is an especially strange one for me. I hated those most of all. And now? I can eat a handful and actually enjoy it. The older I get the more I grow to appreciate foods I once turned my nose at. This new appreciation means my brownies and cookies can now involve some walnut or pecan goodness. Which makes for a chunkier, more moist, and delicious cookie.
