So here's the deal. Since I apparently have nothing to do but test cookie recipes these days, here's the latest.
White chocolate macadamia nut cookies.
Like, with lots of white chocolate chips. And a few macadamia nuts.
Because that's just how I roll.
Normally I don't like nuts in my cookies at all.
But I make an exception with these.
And my aunt brought me a huge bag of roasted macadamia nuts from Hawaii, so I guess I'll have to try these cookies again. With Hawaiian macadamia nuts.
If you need to serve more than two people, double the recipe. Kidding. Sort of.
White Chocolate-Macadamia Nut Cookies
Adapted from the recipe on the Ghiradelli's bag
1 stick butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts
Beat the butter and both sugars in the bowl of a mixer for a couple of minutes until creamy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Add the dry ingredients and mix a couple of turns. Add the chips and nuts and finish mixing with a spatula. The dough will be dry and crumbly, but it will come together. Scoop on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes in a 350 degree oven until done.
