White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

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.

3. Beat together the melted butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Beat in the egg, then beat in the egg yolk, then beat in the vanilla.

4. Gradually add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture until just moistened. Stir in the macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips by hand with a rubber spatula.

5. Roll into balls or drop by heaping tablespoons onto baking sheets.

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.
