White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Kevin asked me to make white chocolate macadamia cookies awhile ago, and I knew the perfect recipe to adapt. I have a Mrs. Fields Cookie Book, and in it her recipe for white chocolate pecan cookies is amazing. Simply sub the macadamias for the pecans, or even try cashews. I also like to use really good quality white chocolate like Green and Blacks, and chop it into chunks myself.

Makes 2 1/2 dozen cookies

You'll need:

2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
3/4 cup softened butter (still sorta cold, but slightly soft)
2 large eggs
2 tsp of vanilla
3/4 cup chopped macadamia nuts
8-9 oz chopped white chocolate

In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, blend butter and sugars together to form a grainy paste. Scrape down sides of the bowl. Add eggs and vanilla, and beat until light and fluffy. Add flour mixture. Blend at low speed until just combined. Fold in the macadamia nuts and chocolate until they are well distributed throughout.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 300 degrees for about 18-20 minutes.

And then try not to eat the whole batch because OH MY are they yummy.
