Have I mentioned I'm obsessed with salty-sweet treats!? ;o)
The salty flavor of the nuts go so well with the sweet white chocolate flavor, purely sublime!
As you may know, I eat gluten free. And in an attempt to not outgrow my clothes I choose to cook all the yummy treats I give my friends "non-gluten free" so I wont be tempted to over eat.
Well, that theory failed. I ended up eating half the dough before having a chance to bake all the cookies- and I have a feeling you'll do the same :o)
This is a must try cookie recipe, and not to mention, super easy to make!
melted chocolate chips = heaven on earth
The Best White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies
(Recipe was definitely adapted from this lovely blog)
Makes 3 dozen (1 dozen if you eat dough like me!)
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 t vanilla
1/2 t salt
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 t baking soda
10 oz white chocolate chips
1 cup macadamia nuts, chopped in chunks
In a large bowl beat the butter, sugars, vanilla and salt.
Add the eggs and beat well
Stir together the flour and soda, gradually add to the butter mixture
Stir in white chocolate chips and nuts.
Drop teaspoon size balls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 8-10 minutes
Cool slightly on cookie sheet before allowing to cool completely on a wire rack.
Note: take the time to cook in small batches and rotating the cookie sheets halfway through baking. This will ensure evenly baked cookies.
