It’s White Chocolate Day! And yes, they do actually have a day set aside for white chocolate. I like white chocolate but am not as fond of it as of dark chocolate but in this White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookie recipe, it takes on a whole new flavor! It’s so good that these are now a family favorite.

I love to bake cookies, maybe because they’re one of the easier things to bake and make the house smell so good but it could also be that I just like to eat them! Whatever the case, I make cookies whenever I get the chance.
