White Chocolate and Macadamia Nut Cookies

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...This simple cookie is always well received, and if you are a fan of white chocolate, I suspect it will become a favorite of yours. I dropped off a batch of these for a bake sale today and they were gone before they made it to the table. I must add that I'm not baking this week and my contribution had been frozen several weeks ago in anticipation of the fundraiser. The cookies keep wonderfully well and only I knew they had come from the freezer. These cookies are easy to make and the macadamia nuts add wonderful texture to what would otherwise be a pillow soft cookie. The recipe I'm sharing with you comes from Taste of Home magazine, and while I'm presenting it to you in unaltered form, I must admit that when I bake these cookies for my family, I also add a teaspoon of lime zest to the mix. With or without the lime zest, I think you'll find this cookie to be a winner. Here is how they are made.

White Chocolate and Macadamia Nut Cookies...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite inspired by Taste of Home magazine

1/2 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
1 cup white baking chips


1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2) In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour and baking soda; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Stir in nuts and baking chips.
3) Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on pans for 1 minute. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. Yield: 4-1/2 dozen.

These sound delicious, Mary. And, I love the idea of the lime zest.

I will be pinning this to make with my grandson.
