White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Pudding Cookies


Nothing beats a batch of freshly baked cookies.  I mean seriously.  Is there anything better than a chewy soft cookie with melted chocolate?  I was so excited to get home from North Carolina and make a fresh batch.  In fact that was the first thing that I made!  And you can’t go wrong with white chocolate macadamia nut.  Such a classic and one of my favorites!

Now lets talk pudding cookies.  Have you tried them before?  I don’t think I will ever go back!  Something about the pudding mix in them that makes them so soft and chewy.   I have yet to find a cookie recipe that gives the same amazing results as adding in a pudding mix.   The best part is that they stay soft and chewy for days after.  I absolutely love this pudding cookie recipe!  Then you add one of my favorite white chocolate and macadamia nuts to them and they are perfect.  I couldn’t stop eating them….  seriously I am eating one right now! 🙂

    I am going to make these this weekend!! Question – salted or unsalted nuts??

  2. Have you ever tried cookies using boxed cake mix? I use to teach Kindrgarten and we made cookies in class all the time using box cake mixes (we were allowed to use the kitchen), the hit of the class!

  3. Oh, my! These are delicious! I used salted macadamia nuts, which I lightly chopped. Thanks so much!
