This weekend I wanted to try and bake something new, so I put together a white chocolate chip macadamia cookie recipe. The cookies hit the spot! I brought them to my parents, and they were a hit! We only have a few left, and that might not be the case tomorrow...
Here's the recipe:
Whisk together: 2 cups minus 2 Tbsp. cake flour (8 1/2 oz), 1 2/3 cups bread flour (8 1/2 oz), 1 ¼ tsp. baking soda, 1 ½ tsp. baking powder, and 3/4 tsp. coarse salt, such as kosher. Set aside.
Cream together 2 ½ sticks (1 ¼ cups; 10 oz.) unsalted butter, softened, 1 ¼ cups (10 oz.) light brown sugar. 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. (8 oz.) granulated sugar. Once light and fluffy add in 2 eggs (one at a time) and then 2 tsp. vanilla extract.
Add in dry ingredients a little at a time until combined. Finally, add in one bag white chocolate chips and 1 cup macadamia nuts.
Refrigerate the dough 24-36 hours. Once the dough is ready, bake at 350 for 10-13 minutes depending on the oven.
