Yield: makes about 4 dozen 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, just softened to room temp (not melty)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 TB vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tsp table salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 12 ounces real white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F, with rack on lower middle position. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In bowl of stand mixer using paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar until smooth and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes on medium high. Add eggs 1 at a time and blend just until incorporated. Add vanilla and almond extracts, mixing just until incorporated.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda. Gently combine together the flour mixture with the butter/sugar mixture until fully mixed.
  4. Fold in white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts, until evenly mixed in.
  5. Make walnut sized balls and flatten a bit (these cookies do not flatten too much during baking.)
  6. Bake for 10 minutes, or just until bottoms of cookies are light golden brown. Cookies may seem soft and underdone, but they will set upon cooling.
  7. Cool 5 minutes on baking sheet and use flat spatula to transfer them onto cooling rack.
