Macadamia Nut Recipe & Mason Jar Gift

Macadamia nut cookies are a sweet treat that can be made to taste. You can make fully loaded macadamia nut cookies using extra macadamia nuts and white chocolate. Or you can have your "add-ins" simply compliment the cookie.


I made my macadamia nut cookies with extra nuts and extra white chocolate!

I gave my macadamia nut cookies as a “thank you gift.” I stacked them in a large mason jar and tied a cute ribbon around the top. Nothing says "thank you" like a sweet treat!

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter (softened)
  • 1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons of packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts (or to taste)
  • 1/2 cup chopped white chocolate (or to taste)
Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. 

Beat or whisk in the egg. Stir in the vanilla and almond extracts. Be careful not to over-pour your extracts—they are very strong and may take over the taste of the cookie.

Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually stir into the creamed mixture. 

Mix in the macadamia nuts and white chocolate. 

Roll dough by the teaspoonfuls into balls and then place them onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8-12 minutes in the oven (depending on your oven), or until golden brown. Serve however you like! You can serve your cookies fresh out of the oven or you can gift them in a mason jar like I did.
