White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Blondies

My husband’s favorite cookie would be Macadamia Nut Cookies, hands down!  He always asks for them or orders them when we are out if there is the option.

I love the ease of blondies! No rolling required!  Just dump them into a pan and spread!

When I saw this recipe from Life’s Simple Measures that combines mine and my hubby’s interests, I had to make them!  He absolutely LOVED them!

    I've always liked blondies, so I am anxious to try this recipe. But I think your Step 1, should be listed before your Step 7. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  2. Diana

    oh, i'm sure these melt in your mouth, I can wait to make them.
    Great pic!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I think the steps are out of order, but otherwise this recipe is at the top of my list to make soon!

      sorry about that. It must have gotten jumbled but I fixed it now! Thanks for bringing it to my attention :)

    Make something that you just need one bowl and only mix the ingredients is a perfect recipe. Ok, we need additional time for the oven, but it's a very quick one right?.
    I love macadamia nuts, and I can't believe we don't have it, It's very very hard to find it on the market.

  5. Janis

    These are delicious made with crushed pretzels instead of the macadamia nuts. YUM!

    I am making these for a friend of mine in the military. =] He loves white chocolate macademia nut cookies, and I've been promising him some for months, but never made them (my hubby is in the military also, and we recently moved). I'm going to use these blondies as a "Sorry it took so long" present for him. =D

  7. Disappointed :(

    Umm, I just baked these and I feel this was reposted as "Blondies" were a mistake. The dough is more like a cookie dough and it turned out to be a big cookie shaped like a brownie -disappointed!! the picture looks like a Blondie, however, it came out as a big cookie. I think the recipe needs to be adjusted?!

    1. Chef in Training

      I am sorry that happened for you. My picture is correct with following the recipes exactly. I live in higher elevation, so maybe by reducing the amount of flour slightly, you would see more of a blondie consistency than a cookie. Sorry you were disappointed and I hope this helps.

    hi there is the flour plain or self raising maybe silly question but am asking anyway

  9. R

    Can I substitute any other nuts like walnuts for macademia nuts? They are not available in my country.
