  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp corn starch
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup white chocolate chip
  • 1 cup chopped macadamia nuts


  • Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally. The butter will start to foam and then start browning. You will be able to smell a nutty aroma when it's ready. Remove from heat and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes.
  • Cream the butter and sugars together.
  • Add in extracts and eggs and continue mixing until well combined.
  • Combine flour, corn starch, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl and use a fork to stir together.
  • Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, mixing just until combined.
  • Fold in white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.
  • Refrigerate dough for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 325F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Scoop out cookie dough, about 2 to 3 tablespoons each, and place on parchment-line cookie sheet.
  • Baked for 11-13 minutes or until just a hint of browning starts. Cookies may appear under baked but don't worry. Let sit on cookie sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
