Better Than Max and Erma's White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

I wanted a thick cookie to duplicate the ones at Max and Erma's, which my mom adores. I came up with this, which is similar to many such recipes, but the real trick to the flavor and thickness is in the cornstarch and the turbinado sugar. The result is a sinfully decadent and flavorful cookie. My mom said Max and Erma's cookies will now make her sad to eat, because they aren't nearly as good as these. I'm not a fan of white chocolate macadamia, and even I had trouble laying off them. Prep time does not include refrigeration. (I don't recommend skipping the fridge step--cold dough helps with the thicker consistency.)
