Delicious classics – White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies. Nutty, sweet, and delicious.
1 1⁄3 cups (175g) all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1⁄4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup (110g) butter, at room temperature
1⁄2 cup (100g) sugar
1/4 cup (50g) light brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 cup (125g) macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
8.8 oz. (250g) white chocolate, chopped
1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F (175°C). Prepare two baking sheets with baking parchment and set aside.
2. Chop the macadamia nuts coarsely. I recommend chopping them varying – some quite small and some cut in half or quarters only, so you get a nice mix of sizes. Chop the white chocolate and mix with the nuts. Set aside. Mix flour, baking soda and salt until well combined. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl mix butter and sugars on high speed until fluffy. Add the vanilla extract and egg and mix until well combined. Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined – do not overmix. Add the chopped macadamia nuts and chocolate and mix.
4. Scoop small amounts of dough on the prepared baking sheets with enough space in between and bake for 10-12 minutes – the edges should start to brown slightly. Take out of the oven and let cool down a bit on the baking sheet. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool down completely. Store in an airtight container.
