White Chocolate and Macadamia Cookies
I can’t believe it’s taken me nearly four years to get around to making some white chocolate and macadamia cookies! I used our tried and tested (+ incredibly delicious) chocolate chip cookie dough for the base and added in the extras. This recipe is easy and delicious and would make a great Christmas present if you are thinking of giving some baking away this season.
250g butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¾ cup caster sugar
¾ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 ¼ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
250g white chocolate bits
130g macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
Preheat oven to 180˚C. Line a couple of oven trays.
Beat butter, vanilla extract, sugars and egg in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
Stir in the sifted flour and baking soda in two batches.
Stir in the chocolate and macadamia nuts.
Roll tablespoons of mixture into balls, place about 5cm apart on the trays.
Bake for about 8 to 12 minutes depending how crispy you want your cookies. Leave to cool slightly on the tray before transferring to a wire rack.
Cookies will keep in an airtight container for up to a week.
