I went to a baby shower last weekend for a wonderful couple, and I decided to make White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookies!! My boyfriend loves the pre made ones, so I was excited to try a homemade recipe! I have never been a fan of white chocolate chips, but when mixed with the saltiness of the macadamia nuts it makes the perfect cookie. Thanks to my Aunt Jeanne who brought down the macadamia nuts to my family straight from Hawaii!
1 stick of butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup plus 2 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 cup macadamia nuts, cut in half
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in egg and vanilla.
In a medium bowl combine flour and baking soda.
Gradually add dry ingredients to wet ingredients.
Stir in nuts and chips.
I measure each ball of dough to be 2 oz. each to make large cookies.
This recipe yields 12 cookies.
Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
