I love white chocolate. I just love the taste of it. Most people are dark and milk chocolate fans but I like white chocolate the most. So I love making cookies with white chocolate chunks or white chocolate chips whenever I can. I love cookie because it is soft and chewy and has a lot of white chocolate in it. I eat these warm...just out of the oven. This is a keeper my friends!
White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour'
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 ounces white chocolate baking bars, chopped in 1/2 inch chunks
1 jar of macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat both sugars, butter, shortening, vanilla and the egg in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer. You want your dough light and fluffy. Stir in the flour, baking soda and salt. At this point your dough will be much stiffer. Then with a wooden spoon, stir in the white chocolate and macadamia nuts.
Drop dough onto un-greased cookie sheet in rounded tablespoons and keep them about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until very light brown. Cookies may look under-cooked but remember they will continue to cook outside the oven for a bit. Cool for about 2 minutes on the cookie sheet and then transfer the cookies to a wire rack.
