Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies

Soft, chewy and just barely crisp on the edges chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies are memorably good. This is one of my favorite cookie combinations.

There is no bad time of day (or even year!) for cookies. And these cookies? You’re going to want them all day (and year) long.

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Nuts

Most folks have robust opinions about whether chocolate chip cookies are better with or without nuts. We’re pretty firmly in the “yes, please!” camp.

Putting nuts in cookies makes them more substantial as a snack. Now they’re not quite health food even with nuts, but they do fill you up faster!

And the buttery, tender, rich macadamia nuts are a perfect complement to decadent, melted, gooey chocolate chips and crisp edged cookie.

Of course, you can leave the nuts out if you are Team No Thank You to nuts in cookies. You don’t have to change anything else in the recipe; just omit the nuts.
