Cranberry White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies Recipe

I have gone my whole life never tasting a macadamia nut cookie. Every time we visit Subway I choose the double chocolate. Something about the white chocolate macadamia nut just never really appealed to me, something about the lack of color. I know, sounds crazy right?  Well, it is said that we eat with our eyes first, so I guess that is why!  A friend convinced me to try a bite of her’s and it wasn’t that bad. I just thought the cookie needed something else.  More color, another level of flavor.  My solution- add cranberries!

Guess what is my new favorite?  This Cranberry White Chocolate Macadamia Nut recipe.  I would take these over my chocolate cookie any day.  I love that they are not overly sweet. The base of the cookie is light and fluffy with a slight crunch around the edge.  Plump cranberries, nutty chocolate..  what more could you want?
