White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

I had some of the White Chocolate Candy Corn M&Ms in the house, and I wanted to bake something with them so I would stop eating them! (I got them at Wal-Mart - they might still have some) Chicken Legs suggested making White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies with them.  Great idea!!

This recipe is different than most; it uses apple butter and cinnamon. It makes the cookies taste like Fall!  These are the best White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookies I've ever had.  I took these cookies to the tailgate last weekend and didn't have any leftover!

  1. That last picture made me want to run to the store right now and buy the ingredients.

  2. I like the idea of adding the apple butter to the cookies, thanks for sharing. I wonder how it would taste in oatmeal & raisin cookies?

    1. That is what I did. They are good either way.

    2. I found the White Chocolate Candy Corn M&M's!!

      Did you use 12 oz - like the chocolate chips? Or 1 bag - which is (this year at least) 9.9 oz?

      Thanks again!

    3. I used 12 oz - Hershey's is still 12 oz in a bag.

    4. Got it. But what about when you made them using m&m's? Did you use a bag? Or a bag plus a little more?
