Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies

Adapted from the “Neiman Marcus” $250 cookie recipe.



  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or silpat.
  2. Add the oats to a food processor or blender and grind to a fine powder. Add to a large bowl and whisk in the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer add the butter and sugar and beat until light and fluffy – 2-3 minutes.
  4. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add in one egg at a time, beat well after each addition and then mix in the vanilla extract.
  5. On low speed slowly add in the flour mixture, mixing just until all the flour is well incorporated.
  6. Add in the nuts and chocolate chips and gently mix together with a spatula.
  7. Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop dough 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes just until the edges are lightly browned and set on the outside but the middle may look a bit undone.
  8. Remove from the oven and let cool 3-4 minutes on the cookie sheet then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
