Add-ins for these cookies

You’ll add vegan white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts to these cookies. It’s an absolutely delicious combination of sweet and salty.

Vegan White Chocolate Chips: There are many types of vegan white chocolate chips on the market. Some notable brands are King David, Nestle Toll House, and Great Value.

Macadamia Nuts: We love the flavor that dry roasted and salted macadamia nuts add to these cookies (they are also the most widely available), but you can use any macadamia nuts of choice. You will want to chop them into small pieces before measuring and adding to the cookies.

    OMG. These are unbelievably delicious. I love a good cookie recipe where non vegans can’t tell the difference. When I first went vegan most baking recipes left things very oily. These are just perfect in every way. I used the King David white chocolate.

    Thank you thank you thank you for this recipe and satisfying my craving.

    I just got vegan white chocolate chips from and was so eager to make this exact cookie. It’s been about 22 years since I’ve enjoyed these (ie: are the half cooked ones subway always had to offer..) and these turned out amazing. Thank you for the recipe!xo

    Would it be ok to add the whole 12oz bag of chocolate chips and 8oz of the nuts?
