Baking, Something sweet

White chocolate and macadamia cookies


These are a real treat. I haven’t made them for a while and now I have I’m thinking they might be my favourite cookies! They are similar to the ginger, macadamia and coconut cookies I made recently but richer, and not as healthy! this will make about 20 cookies.

So what do you need?

  • 130g soft (unsalted)
  • 130g soft brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 free-range egg
  • 300g plain (all purpose) flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 150g chopped macadamia nuts
  • 150g good quality, chunky white chocolate chips

So what do you do?

Start by pre-heating your oven to 175 degrees C / 350 F. Then cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl or a mixer. When they are soft and fluffy add the vanilla essence and the egg and mix them in well. Next add the slat, flour and baking powder and mix this in to form a dough. Finally add the macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips and mix these in.

On lined baking sheets put tablespoons of the mixture with some space between them, you can flatten them down a little if you like. Then put them in the oven and back for 15-20 minutes until they start to go golden brown. Remove them from the oven and allow to cool on the tray for a few minutes before putting them on a wire rack to cool completely.
