    The star of this recipe is the white chocolate. When the cookies are baked, the white chocolate oozes into the cookie, creating a wonderfully rich treat. The crunch of the macadamia nuts makes these cookies absolutely perfect.

    These cookies were great! I didn't change a thing, and they were just perfect. I got about 36 average-sized cookies out of this recipe, and each one was delectable. I have tried other recipes which include brown sugar, and have determined that brown sugar has too bold a flavor for the delicate white chocolate and macadamia nuts. Trust me-- this recipe is absolutely fabulous. UPDATE: My husband and I love these cookies so much that we make the dough, freeze the uncooked dough balls on a cookie sheet, put them in a zip-lock bag, and keep a supply handy at all times. Whenever we crave them, we'll pop a few out of the bag and bake at 350 for about 15-18 minutes. Awesome.  -  02 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
