White Chocolate Chunk Macadamia Nut Cookies

December 2nd, 2011 by theAddison



We keep getting positive comments on these awesome cookies that we featured during the B&B Association Holiday Cookie Tour in November. The cookies were a big hit. They are best fresh out of the oven so Shannon baked 500 of them on the morning of the tour and we only had a small bag of cookies left at the end of the day.

WHITE CHOCOLATE CHUNK MACADAMIA NUT COOKIES

INGREDIENTS:
• 1½ cups all purpose flour
• ½ tsp baking soda
• ½ tsp salt
• ½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
• ½ cup granulated sugar
• ½ cup packed light brown sugar
• 1 large egg
• 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
• 1 cup salted roasted macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
• 1 cup pure white chocolate chunks
 
DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 350F.
In medium bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed, cream together butter and two sugars until fluffy. On low speed, add egg and vanilla. Slowly add flour mixture until just blended. Stir in nuts and chocolate.
Line the baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat.
Drop tablespoonfuls on cookie sheets 2 inches apart. Bake in batches in preheated oven until lightly golden at edges, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool completely. Eat ‘em up!
