White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

I was recently struck by an attack of the sugar bugs! I just really needed a cookie. And I didn’t really care what kind. While shuffling through my recipe binder, there was one recipe that stuck out! Look! Hot out the oven!


Ingredients
1 cup butter, softened
3 cups white rice flour (oops! I forgot to put this in the original post)
1 cup brown sugar, packed** see note below
1 1/2 cup sugar** see note below
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup white chocolate chips**
1/2 cup walnuts, broken into pieces
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

**Note: this cookie is very good but waay too sweet for my tastes. In the future I plan to use half the amount of sugar.
**The original recipes calls for 2 cups of white chocolate chips. That much chocolate and sugar is way too sweet.
**To make sugar cookies, omit the chips and nuts.

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cream butter and sugars together until fluffy. Add vanilla. Then add eggs, one at a time while beating well.

In a separate bowl, blend flour, baking soda, and salt. Add slowly to the wet mixture. Mix well (I used an electric mixture).

Add in the chips and nuts. Now you’re ready to bake.

Gather about a teaspoonful of the mix together and roll into a ball.  Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for about 9 to 10 minutes. The original recipe says to bake for 10-12 minutes but I found that this made the cookies too crunchy/brittle.  But everyone is different in what they like.

This is a great tasting cookie. Decorate it with icing, or smooth ice cream between two of them and freeze! Yum!
