Perfect soft and chewy cookies, packed with white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts, these cookies are just like Subway cookies... but even better as you know exactly what is in them!
Who doesn't love a subway cookie!!! They have mastered the perfect mix between crunch and chew! Firm enough to stay together but soft enough to melt into your mouth.
I shared a double chocolate chip subway cookie recipe about a year ago. They are still my boys favourite! But subway do so many other delicious flavours! White chocolate and macadamia nut cookies being my favourite (although the raspberry and white chocolate one is a very close second!)
The double chocolate chip cookies took me a couple of attempts to get right, so when I set about making my favourite white chocolate and macadamia nut subway style cookies I thought I'd nail it in a couple of tries.
Ha!!!! I made so many delicious white chocolate and macadamia nut cookies, but after 4 attempts I still hadn't made ones I left worthy of the title subway style cookies. I did a final tweak and 5th time lucky!!!
I was a very popular lady that week!!! I think everyone I know got to try those cookies, I'm not entirely sure where each batch went. Except that final batch, that went to the group of Mums that I was on a business course with. That box didn't last long!
These cookies look pretty unassuming, but they are so so delicious! They are definitely what I call subway style cookies.
