White Chocolate Chunk Macadamia Cookies



Welcome to the world, Alvin! Alvin was born last week, and is my brother's baby. Isn't he just gorgeous? Before going to visit my brother and his fiancé Thina, I made some cookies. After all, they're going to have tons of people visiting in the next few days, and no time to bake, I'm sure.

These cookies are very rich and cake-y, but still crunchy and full of good stuff. Very sweet, and it's the kind when just one will be plenty. They freeze reasonably well, like most cookies.




White Chocolate Chunk Macadamia Cookies
20 large cookies

1 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of sugar
150 g butter, cut in small pieces
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
200 g white chocolate, roughly chopped
200 g macadamias, unsalted (I only had salted, so I had to soak them. It worked out well.) and roughly chopped

Preheat oven to 150 degrees C (about 300F). Mix the butter and the sugars until creamy. Add the eggs and the vanilla. Add the flour and baking soda, mix until just combined, and fold in the chocolate and macadamias. Drop into large cookies, and bake for about 20 minutes.
