"Subway" White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookie

by Cindy

Subway is one of my favorite sandwich and salad places to eat.  They make it easy to eat healthy and I love that, but their cookies don't really go along with the healthy eating idea.  I don't buy cookies there regularly now, but there was a time when as a family we would buy the 3 for $1 deal.(See that was a long time ago lol) We would split them up so that there wasn't too much damage to the diet.  I love all of their variety of cookies but my favorite is the White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookie.
I have tried several different recipes looking for the one that tastes the most like the White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookie, and I think I've found it.  This recipe is very similar to any regular chocolate chip cookie recipe.  I loved the way they turned out.  They are soft and chewy and totally yummy.  I'm going to have one with my morning coffee as soon as I post this, but I'm giving the rest away so that they don't tempt and talk to me all weekend.  

Have a safe and enjoyable Labor Day weekend!

4 1/4 cups unbleached white flour
2 t baking soda

Macadamia nut is so tasty. I like the cookies and will try to make them myself. The oil is good for your skin as well. A good reason to have the cookies ahem ;-)
