There is so much goodness packed into one little cookie – these White Chocolate Coconut Macadamia Nut Cookies are sweet and nutty and delicious!
I am very excited about today’s post. I have teamed up with some other wonderful bloggers in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We all created pink recipes to help raise awareness. I love when baking/cooking leads to good! #CookingforaCure
The title of these cookies is a mouthful – White Chocolate Coconut Macadamia Nut Cookies! But I couldn’t leave an ingredient out of the name – they are all equally important and make up one amazing cookie!
Growing up, I always loved getting a cookie at Mrs. Fields when we would go to the mall. And my favorite flavor was the white chocolate macadamia nut cookie. There is just something about the flavor combo that is so great, especially when you add coconut to the mix! Every time I have one, it reminds me of being young.
I love the texture of these cookies. They are slightly crispy on the edges, but still super soft in the middle – that is my favorite cookie texture!
And then they are chock full of delicious ingredients. The coconut helps the cookies stay soft and chewy and adds a nice tropical flavor. The nuts add a great crunch and nutty flavor – I love macadamia nuts! And the white chocolate gets all melty and ties the whole cookie together. They really are delicious!
For a little extra flavor and to make the cookies pink pretty, I drizzled the top with some melted white chocolate mixed with a drop of red food coloring. Let me save you some trouble for your future white chocolate drizzling activities…white chocolate melted by itself will not drizzle well. I tried. It just doesn’t work, it gets kind of clumpy and not smooth at all. But! If you add just a touch of oil to the melted white chocolate, it gets nice and smooth and drizzle-able! I used coconut oil to keep with the coconut theme of the cookies, but you can also use regular vegetable oil.
