This is my husbands favorite cookie, I made it many times while he was in Iraq.

Be REALLY careful on the cooking time. Ovens vary greatly, they should just have a smidge of color to the edges.

white sugar
2 tsp
vanilla extract
2 1/2 c
all-purpose flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
12 oz
white chocolate, chopped
10 oz
jar macadamia nuts, chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Stir in the egg and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt, stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, stir in the white chocolate and nuts. Chill for about 1 hour in the refrigerator. 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.

I'll bet these would be good as a bar cookie also, and add coconut and butterscotch chips on top of the cookie . these sound very good.

Have been wanting to make some White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies so I went into JAP specifically to find a recipe for them...and yours was one of them. Since I have made one of your blue ribbon recipes before and loved it, I thought I'd print yours up and make them. Thanks for posting this recipe, Brandi. 3/17/13
