White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Posted on February 16, 2009. Filed under: Chocolate, Cookies, Desserts |

I can just taste the richness of these cookies, without even having one in my mouth. They are so moist, and butter, and delicious.

1/2 pound unsalted butter at room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 extra-large eggs at room temperature
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 pound good white chocolate, coarsely chopped
1/2 pound macadamia nuts, chopped

Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Cream the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add the vanilla, then the eggs, 1 at a time, and mix well. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt and add to the chocolate with the mixer on low speed until just combined. Fold in the chopped white chocolate and nuts.

Drop the dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, using a 1 3/4-inch ice cream scoop or a rounded tablespoon. Bake for exactly 15 minutes (the cookies will seem underdone). Remove from the oven and let cool slightly on the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
