Chewy White Chocolate, Craisin & Macadamia Nut Cookies

The thing I love about Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix is, you don’t just have to make plain old ordinary sugar cookies! I use this as a base for a delicious, chewy, gourmet cookies with all kinds of different mix-ins. The cookie I am featuring in this post has white chocolate chunks, Craisins and Macadamia nuts mixed in. I have also used this sugar cookie mix and I added oatmeal, toasted coconut and milk chocolate chips! If you love a soft, chewy cookie, start with this mix and add your own creative touch. HERE is a link to my “Sunny Side Up Cookies” made with this same cookie mix. The mix is available in most grocery stores or on Amazon.com.
