Who doesn’t love a warm cookie fresh out of the oven?  That is how must cookies should be eaten, don’t you think?

If I could eat one cookie everyday it would be these White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies.  

Or maybe Chocolate Chip.

These are probably my favorite next to Chocolate Chip Cookies.  I love the combination of white chocolate with macadamia nuts, it’s a match made in heaven.    

Mr. Mother Thyme and my kiddos love these cookies.  They are soft, chewy and great for dunking in a tall glass of cold milk.  What makes these little bites of deliciousness so good is I use a box of vanilla instant pudding mix in the batter which makes these cookies even better.  I must admit, I am obsessed with using pudding mix in cookies, just try my Pistachio Wedding Cookies or Lemon Wedding Cookies.  If you don’t like using pudding mix or don’t have any on hand, no worries just use 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract instead.

Give these yummy cookies a try the next time you have a cookie craving.  These may quickly become your new favorite!
