I found out about a week ago that my husband loves macadamia nut cookies. I should have known...When we go to Hawaii he eats atleast 5 bags of Macadamia Nuts covered in a variety of stuff! I usually have a handful of them but he usually enjoys the bag by himself in the shade on the beach. While I soak in the sun, reading a magazine, drinking a tropical drink.
But since these cookies have white chocolate in them I ate at least 6 of them in one day and then more then next day and the next. I think I may have ended up eating more then my husband did and I intentionally made them for him. Looks like I will be making him another batch that he can actually eat this time!
White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies
1 cube butter, room temperature
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Roasted Salted Macadamia Nuts, chopped into small pieces
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Cream butter and sugar together. Add egg, then vanilla and almond extract. Shift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add the flour mixture to the creamy mixture. Add macadamia nuts and then fold in white chocolate chips. Bake for 12 minutes or until cookies have barely lost their shine and the edges are getting lightly browned. Let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes and then transfer to cooling rack.
