Mmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm.
Milk Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies. Oh so delicious!
We were sitting around last night, really wanting cookies. Cowboy’s favourite cookie is a white chocolate macadamia nut, which I never make for some reason. I didn’t have any white chocolate, but man this was such a good substitute! Baking for a short time makes them chewy, and you could bake them even less and still get away with it.
Beat butter and sugar so that they are well creamed.
Please use real butter!
Add egg and vanilla, then flour, mixing until just combined
Then stir in nuts and chocolate. Scoop out tablespoon sized balls, roll them into smoother balls and plunk them on a lightly greased baking sheet. When you have them all done, press them down with a fork
Bake at 350F for 12 minutes. These are chewey, not gooey. So delicious!
They so fought that craving I had for cookies.
