Zoe's bake sale and it was one out of many I had made and barely tasted. At some point in my cookie-baking frenzy that afternoon, I was doing the barest taste tests, just enough to make sure I hadn't used salt instead of sugar by the cupfuls or was risking poisoning anybody. I didn't have the luxury of savoring a test cookie just for the taste. I was in production mode.
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 ounces good quality white chocolate, chopped
6.5 ounces macadamia nuts, lightly toasted, rough chop
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt, stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, stir in the white chocolate and nuts. Drop cookies by heaping teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.
- Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks. When cool, store in an airtight container.
