Ok y’all, we talked about the figs drama, but we have not discussed my obsession with this dang peanut butter.  And FULL DISCLOSURE – this is totally not a sponsored post.  I’m just obsessed.

It happens a lot.   Just ask Chris.  Poor guy.




I don’t hoard the peanut butter as much the way I do figs, but they just don’t carry this stuff in all the stores where I shop, so when I seen the Peanut Butter & Co. White Chocolate Wonderful I go a bit crazy and totally mow down grannies and small children stock up.




I actually do not make cookies very often, but when I saw this peanut butter and white chocolate combo in a jar, I immediately wanted some peanut butter cookies with white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.

I was right.  Totally.

White Chocolate Macadamia Peanut Butter Cookies

  3. Beat together peanut butter, butter, and sugar until smooth and creamy then beat in the egg
  4. Gradually beat in flour a little bit at a time until combined
  5. Stir in macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips
  6. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  7. Using a 1 tablespoon size scoop, scoop out dough, scraping on the side so no extra dough remains, transfer to baking sheet two inches apart
  8. Use a fork to gently press down one direction then the opposite direction to about 1/2 inch height
  9. Bake 8-10 minutes until lightly golden
  10. Cool on wire rack

Note:  If you don’t have a scoop, just use a tablespoon size measuring spoon and roll the dough into balls with your hands

Note: Either use one baking sheet and bake in batches (what I did) or use two and rotate them halfway through

  1. I tots just saw this peanut butter in the store the other day…I should have grabbed it! And I’m ok with you being obsessed with baking cookies. I mean it could be a lot worse than cookies. At least Chris has a ton of yummy treats to eat, too!

    • You tots have to try this peanut butter! I’m seeing now that they also came out with a pumpkin flavor too! Say whaaaa? Chris is one lucky fella to get to be married to me! 🙂

  2. White chocolate macadamia cookies are my ALL TIME FAVORITE cookie!! Like I try not to make them too often because I end up eating the entire batch in one sitting and get a tummy ache. But i can’t control myself! The addition of that fabulous white chocolate peanut butter sounds simply divine!!!! Love love love!! Pinned! Cheers to a beautiful weekend, lovely! Xo

    • Oh no! We don’t want any tummy aches, but you totally will not be able to stop if you start in on these. White chocolate macadamia cookies are my favorite too, but throw in some white chocolate peanut butter? Man! Thanks for the pin and the love, girfriend! Keep enjoying your vacay and have a fantastic weekend too! Cheers! XO

    • I agree with you 100%, Annie! Peanut butter cookies remind me of my grandmother. I’m glad we could share some memories, friend!

  3. I can never turn down peanut butter cookies and the white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts totally took these to a whole new level! Love PB&Co’s White Chocolate Wonderful – so dangerous but so darn good and absolutely worth it! 🙂

  4. My dad used to make peanut butter cookies all the time when I was a kid. I don’t think I’ve had them since he last made them… huh, I’m going to have to change that.
    I’ve never heard of the White Chocolate Wonderful, but it sounds like it would make a fantastic cookie! Pinned for sure!

  5. Oh, boy, I’m a fan of that peanut butter too. I once made a sweet panini with it. That was either a bad choice or a good one, depending on your perspective. Haha. :). These cookies look fabulous!

  6. I will never argue with any kind of PB obsession. And forget about sponsored posts with PB. I’ll plug it for free any day! These cookies look absolutely perfect, all thick and white chocolate chippy!

  7. Perfect combo of ingredients! I just wanted to ask how many cookies will this recipe yield using the tablespoon size scoops? Can’t wait to make these!

    • Thanks so much for visiting, Stephanie! Shame on me for not including the amount and I didn’t write it down, but from what I recall it made almost 3 dozen. Don’t tell anyone, but I burnt the first ones I put in the oven, so they aren’t in any of the pictures! 🙂 I hope you like them as much as we did!
