White chocolate chunk macadamia cookies

These cookies are very, very close to the ones served by a certain fast-food restaurant - Subway. They are crispy at the edges and soft and chewy in the middle. Just make sure you don't over-bake them. 

White Chocolate Chunk Macadamia Cookies
Makes 24 medium cookies 

125 g butter, softened
110 g white sugar 
110 g brown sugar 
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
210 g flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda 
100 g white chocolate, cut into chunks 
70 g macadamia nuts (unsalted!), halved 

Cream the butter with both types of sugar until very  soft and fluffy. I use my Kitchen-aid but handheld beaters will work too. Add the egg and beat well. And the vanilla, too. 
Next, add salt, baking powder and baking soda, and the flour. Mix to incorporate. 
Finally add chocolate and macadamias, and mix briefly. 

Shape about 24 balls and place well spaced on lined cookie sheets. The cookies will spread a fair amount so don’t place them too closely. 

Bake at 175° C for about ten minutes. The cookies should be slightly brown at the edges. Let them cool on the baking sheets, before you move them.
