I think white chocolate is good in just about anything sweet, but when you pair it with macadamia nuts it just makes it extra special. These cookies are so easy to make and the flavor is just wonderful. They are soft and chewy and stay that way if you don't over bake them and store them in an airtight container. Here is what you need for these:
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup macadamia nuts, crushed
12 oz. bag of white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine flour, soda, salt and baking powder in another bowl. Gradually add to the butter mixture, mixing after each addition.
Stir in the nuts and white chocolate chips. Drop on ungreased cookie sheets and bake for approximately 9-10 minutes. Don't over bake them if you like them soft and chewy. Allow to cool slightly before removing from the cookie sheet.
For the best results when making home made cookies, use a good heavy cookie sheet, not a thin flimsy one. The thin cookie sheets burn the bottom of the cookies and they don't rise as much.
