So this post is a little late for my weekly cookie installment...but these were made a week or so ago with the cookie-thon. White chocolate macadamia was requested by quite a few people and voted as their favorite. I suppose the subtle sweetness of the white chocolate and the crunch of the macadamia nut make these a perfect balance of a cookie...and I'm sure in some way, they are kind of healthy. ;-) Anyways, enjoy!
Yield: About 2 dozen cookies (depending on size) *I used a small ice cream scoop and it yielded 3 1/2 dozen. *
2 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup butter, melted
1 cup packed light brown sugar½ cup white sugar1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1½ cups chopped macadamia nuts
2 cups white chocolate chips
1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Grease baking sheets or line with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt and set aside.
6. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges look golden brown and the middles don’t look quite set. Allow to finish cooling on the baking sheet.
