    I'm so glad I found your site, and this recipe. I absolutely LOVE WCMN cookies and I've only tried to make them once. It turned out to be a disaster and I was so bummed I blew all of that money on macadamia nuts. You've inspired me to try it again! Thanks!

    Stunning, this is an absolute favourite flavour of mine. I love the ones I get at Subway but these look even more yummy.

    A suggestion: instead of 2 teaspoons of vanilla, use 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1 teaspoon almond extract.

    I had run out of vanilla while making these cookies and needed something to compensate, so this was a total accident, but the cookies were AMAZING!

    I just made these! I am living abroad in Sweden and since these are my favorite cookie in America, I had to make them for my Swedish roommate and he loved them too!

    Yummy! I found mine to be a bit salty, but I used salted nuts. Next time I will cut out the salt if I have salted nuts or use unsalted nuts. Took these to work and everyone raved!

    I live in South Africa, but developed an obsession with Tim Horton's wcmn cookies while working in Toronto for a couple of months…
    I tried out this recipe in SA and these cookies taste like the real thing:)! Yummie!

    Oh gosh these look good!! White chocolate is on my list of weaknesses, falling right after my #1: peanut butter.

    A little tip for keeping cookies soft (works for brown sugar too) put a piece of bread in the cookie jar (or brown sugar container) and it keeps them moist and fresh longer. Works on store bought or homemade cookies. πŸ™‚ Definitely going to try these!

    O.M.G. I have just found the ultimate cookie recipe ever! Thank you so much πŸ™‚ I made a batch of these for work, everyone loved them, and today I made another batch for work only substituting macadamias with pecans (purely only because I needed to use them) . But they are so easy- took 1 hour max from start to finish. Next I had better make your blondes πŸ™‚

    Just made these because I got macadamia nuts at Costco, SUUUUCH A GOOD COOKIE RECIPE!

    texture is marvelous, cooking time on point and the ratio of add ins is spot on – going to be making these a lot, but no sharing! om nom nom
