Some classics are better left well alone, while others just cry out for a little tweaking. White chocolate macadamia nuts cookies are one standby that I couldn’t resist playing with one Friday afternoon a few weeks back.

Friday cookies have kind of become a thing and even though my go-to brown butter chocolate chip cookies never fail to make me happy, sometimes I like to switch it up.

White chocolate chips + macadamia nuts + toffee chunks for the win! Continue Reading…
