I figured the least I could do was ask them what kind of sweet treat they wanted me to make for them to snack on while they were working.
Justin said "I don't care mom, whatever you make is fine" Gotta love that boy!
Connor said "I'd love to have some White Chocolate Macadamia cookies". So Connor won because I really wanted to bake something and I can always use another great white chocolate cookie recipe :)
As you all already know, I'm not a big fan of chocolate. What you might not know is that I do LOVE white chocolate! Especially in baked goods.
These cookies were so good. They were soft in the middle and had great flavor. The white chocolate and macadamia nuts are an awesome combination. I'll definitely be making these again!
Here's what you need:
1 cup butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 extra large egg
2 Tbs. corn syrup
2 tsp. vanilla
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 cups white chocolate chips
1 cup chopped macadamia nuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
Mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl and set aside.
In a medium bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy.
Add the egg, corn syrup, and vanilla and mix well.
Add the flour mixture and mix until combined.
Add the white chocolate chips and chopped macadamia nuts and mix until incorporated.
Using a large Pampered Chef scoop place on a lined baking sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes. If using a small scoop adjust the baking time to 9-12 minutes.
These cookies are heavenly! Thanks Connor for the suggestion :)
Serves 2-3 dozen depending on the size of the cookies
