These cookies are reminiscent of a white chunk macadamia nut cookie but better. Using slivered almonds instead of macadamia nuts is a more economical alternative. Follow baking directions. The cookies can be a little tricky to get right on the first pan. Unless the oven is preheated, they might not turn out. Note that these cookies don't bake well on airbake pans.

  • Cream the margarine together with the white sugar and brown sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time until thoroughly blended. Mix in the vanilla and almond extracts.

  • Stir the flour, baking soda, salt, and rolled oats together in a mixing bowl until well blended. Stir the flour mixture into the sugar mixture. Mix in the coconut, white chocolate, and macadamia nuts until evenly blended. Drop by tablespoonfuls 1 inch apart on prepared cookie sheets.

  • Bake in preheated oven until centers are set and edges are golden brown, about 15 minutes. Cool 3 minutes on baking sheets before removing to cool on a rack.

Good cookie a little sweet but very tasty. If I make these again I will add more white chocolate (I used half a bag of white choc. chips...next time the whole bag!) more mac nuts and decrease the sugar a little. Read More

I made a trial run of these and cut the recipe in half just in case noone was a fan. I did the math for the sugars and did half and half of each so my cookies would be a lighter shade like chocolate chip cookies. I also ground down the oatmeal in my blender to give it a less chunky consistancy. (We like our oatmeal cookies that way.) Instead of white chocolate chunks I used white chocolate chips. The submitter suggested to preheat your cookie sheets but I found that just preheating the oven was sufficient. Ten minutes at 350 lent to a soft chewy cookie. Heaven in your mouth. Next time I'll double the recipe and share with my friends and neighbors. This would be really good with Craisins too I think. Next time I might use all vanilla. Read More

Super cookies! I did not have vanilla or baking soda so I used 1 extra teaspoon of almond extract and substituted baking powder for the soda. Wonderful texture and flavor. With an "air-bake" cookie sheet I had to increase the baking time to 18 minutes and they are perfectly golden. These are now top of our list for cookies. Read More

Delicious!! I didn't have macadamia nuts so I used cashews. Note that this makes a very large batch. I was overflowing my KitchenAid! Next time I will make a half batch. This time I froze half the cookie dough. Read More

Very good...but next time I will cut the almond extract in half. It was a little too much & left an aftertaste. Read More

Amazing cookie! I love white chocolate macadamia cookies and this is my favorite recipe! I blend my oats because I prefer the texture used white chocolate chips and left out the coconut but those are just personal preferences. Some reviews suggest halfing the recipe I think you can't have enough of these! I did and ended up with 26 large cookies. Delicious! Read More
