A must to try...

If you love coconut, white chocolate, and nuts you'll LOVE these!

Truly Amazing Cookie!!

I'm a big TOLL HOUSE chocolate chip cookie fan so not too many other cookies impress me. This one is a WOW cookie. If you love coconut this is for you! We made it with roughly chopped pecans instead of macadamia nuts (too expensive) and they were fantastic. We also skipped the salt and just used salted butter. Much better this way. ENJOY!!

Best cookies ever

Thesse Island cookies are wonderful. My husband does not want me to make any other kind of cookie now. He claims they are "magical"!

Great cookies

Today I made my first batch of White Chip Island Cookies. Really GREAT cookies ... well worth the expense of macadamia nuts. I'm so grateful to Nestles for such recipes. I have always used the white chips in my usual chocolate chip recipes so this new recipe is a real treat. Thanks!!

Delicious cookies

I made these cookies for the first time over the Christmas holiday and my family thought these were the best cookies ever! I took the extra few minutes to toast the coconut, which made the cookies exceptional!
