Macadamia White Chocolate Chunk Cookies
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
½ cup white sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 cup (4 oz) macadamia nuts, chopped
1 ½ cups (8 oz) white chocolate bar, coarsely chopped
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F
In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt. Mix well with a wire whisk and set aside.
In a large bowl with an electric mixer blend sugars at medium speed. Add butter and mix to form a grainy paste, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Add eggs and vanilla, and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.
Add the flour mixture and chocolate chunks, and blend at low speed until just combined. (DO NOT OVERMIX).
Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake 24-25 minutes until cookies are slightly brown along edges. Transfer cookies immediately to cool surface with a spatula.
*Note - if desired, add two tablespoons of shredded coconut to the batter to create coconut cookies.
