White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies
White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies are big, thick, soft and chewy cookies. My absolute favorite kind of cookie! Measuring the dough out with a 1/4 cup measuring cup gave me one and a half dozen gorgeous thick and chewy cookies. You can of coarse make them smaller and get more cookies from the dough. Just remember the baking time will be shorter.
Not a fan of white chocolate? Switch it out for milk or semisweet chocolate and use the nuts you have on hand. As long as you keep the cookie base the same, you could add the chip flavor of your choice ( or chopped up flavored chocolate), add nuts and have different flavored cookies every time you make them. I love the versatility,
We start this delicious cookie recipe by gathering our ingredients together from the pantry.
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 Teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 egg, room temperature
- 1 egg yolk, room temperature
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla
- 1 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Stir the dry ingredients together and set it aside.
Place the melted butter, both sugars ( brown and white) together in a large bowl and beat together until well incorporated.
Add the whole egg, egg yolk and vanilla to the bowl, mix together until well incorporated.
Place your mixer on low speed and slowly add the flour mixture to the bowl, beat until just incorporated.
“Beat until just incorporated” You see that a lot in recipes and for good reason. The reason you “beat until just incorporated” is because the longer you beat the flour into this recipe or any recipe your baking, the tougher the final product will be.
Add the white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts to the bowl and fold them into the batter. At this point, if you want to use regular chocolate chips or another nut besides macadamia nuts, go for it. It’s your kitchen and you can do what you want. Chill the cookie dough for 30 minutes in the bowl. While you’re waiting for the dough to chill, preheat your oven to 325 degrees. After the chilling time is up…
Measure the dough out using a 1/4 cup measuring cup and roll into a ball. Place the balls on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake in a 325 degree preheated oven until golden brown, about 12 – 15 minutes.
