Soft, chewy Milk Chocolate Cookies with Macadamia Nuts! These are fantastic warm out of the oven!
I always forget to share cookie recipes with all of you. I make cookies at least once a week around here, but I put them immediately in the cookie jar and forget sometimes to take photos. Occasionally it’s an old recipe, but more often than not I try to make something new. I usually find inspiration by walking down the cookie aisle in the grocery store. I’ll see a package of Pepperidge Farm cookies and think, “oooh that sounds good.” And instead of paying $4 for a package of 12 cookies; I make my own!
These Milk Chocolate and Macadamia Nut cookies are my take on the Sausalito cookies from Pepperidge Farm.
My kids prefer to not have nuts in their cookies, except when it comes to macadamias. We ALL love macadamia nuts!
You can certainly use whatever NUT you prefer, pecans would be great in this cookie too.
This recipes makes about 3-5 dozen cookies, depending on how big you scoop them. For some of you that may be a lot of cookies! You can either bake them all, let them cool completely, then freeze your baked cookies in gallon sized ziploc freezer bags. OR, my preference, is to freeze the dough. I scoop out the dough on a metal cookie sheet (the size I would normally scoop to bake). Freeze for one hour. Then stick all the frozen cookie dough balls into a ziploc freezer bag marked with the type of cookie and how to bake. This way you have cookie dough made and ready to bake. Which means, fresh baked cookies in minutes! I usually have to add a few minutes onto the bake time if I am baking them from frozen.
