White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

My DD recently moved out on her own - she has five other roomies. Today I'm going to see her new place and I decided to take a little treat, I found this recipe on a friend's blog some years ago. Her blog is no longer operational, or else I'd link to it.

These are so delicious and just like the Pepperidge Farm kind, but actually better because they are fresh made and much more economical to make.

I didn't bake a lot before because there were only the three of us at home and I didn't need all that extra junk in the house. It's nice to have a reason to bake and know that I can just drop whatever we won't eat off somewhere.

Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup Crisco shortening, softened
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup coarsely chopped macadamia nuts
1 cup coarsely chopped white chocolate

Directions:
  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, shortening, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth.
  3. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla extract.
  4. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; gradually stir into the creamed mixture.
  5. Stir in macadamia nuts and white chocolate.
  6. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Yields: 4 dozen cookies
