White Chocolate Macadamia Pie made with a fluffy white chocolate cream filling studded with orange zest and macadamia nuts and topped with a silky smooth chocolate ganache and freshly whipped cream.
Welcome to PIE WEEK! If you know the Driggs family, you will know we are serious about pies. We usually make 15 - 20 pies every Thanksgiving and invite neighbors over to devour them with us. This White Chocolate Macadamia Pie goes down as one of my favorite pies of all time. My sister-in-law, Robyne, brings this every single year to our Thanksgiving dinner and it is gone within minutes.
To make this White Chocolate Macadamia Pie, it starts with a homemade all-butter pie crust. Find the simple recipe HERE with all of the tips, tricks, and detailed photos. The white chocolate filling is made with melted white chocolate, softened cream cheese, butter, sugar, orange zest, whipped cream, and macadamia nuts. Oh my word. I could bathe in this fluffy goodness. Okay...maybe not bathe but eat the entire bowl. This pie has everything -- it's creamy, it's sweet, it's crunchy, and it's decadent.
The fluffy white chocolate cream filling is topped with a silky chocolate ganache made with heavy cream and semi-sweet chocolate. This White Chocolate Macadamia Pie is garnished with fresh handcrafted sweetened whipped cream and a sprinkle of macadamia nuts.
This pie has a touch of orange which brings freshness to such a sinful pie. The macadamia nuts bring a salty crunch to the creamy filling. When making this White Chocolate Orange Cream Pie, it is important to give the filling enough time to set up so chill it for at least 3 -4 hours. I usually decorate it with some homemade whipping cream when I am ready to serve it to my guests.

Perfect! Thanks so much!
This looks so delicious and I’d like to try it for thanksgiving. I am wondering how many oz roughly white chocolate is needed? Is it a cup of chopped white chocolate? If it’s a cup of melted chocolate I’m wondering how much will equal the melted cup? Thank you so much in advance!
Hi Haley! These are great questions. So it will be 6 ounces of white chocolate, prior to melting. It would be 1 cup (or 6 ounces) of chopped white chocolate. I hope this helps!
