Zoe's bake sale. I already had White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies but I had more macadamias and white chocolate on hand so I forged ahead with a bar cookie version just to make sure I had enough baked goods to bring to the bake sale.
1 cup butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 cups plus 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups white chocolate chips
1 cup macadamia nuts, toasted and rough chopped
- Heat oven to 350°F. Line a 13x9-inch pan with foil and spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Dust with flour and shake out the excess. Set aside.
- Place butter and brown sugar in bowl of electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment and cream together on medium speed until smooth batter is formed (about 3 minutes). While the mixer is running, add eggs and vanilla extract, until incorporated into batter.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together 3 cups of flour and baking powder. Slowly add flour mixture to the batter and mix on low speed until a dough is formed. Very gently, fold in white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts into dough.
- Pour the batter into the prepared pan and evenly spread. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until set yet still moist.
