I saw this recipe in a Family Circle dessert magazine and couldn’t wait to try it!  The sweet white chocolate with the tart raspberries really compliment each other.  Hope you enjoy them!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line an 8X8X2 baking dish with foil.  Let the foil extend over the edges of the pan and spray generously with non stick spray.  In a medium saucepan melt butter and 2 oz white chocolate over low heat, stirring often.  Once melted and smooth remove from heat and let cool slightly.  Stir in eggs, sugar and vanilla until just combined.  Add flour, baking powder, and salt.  Stir in almonds and white chocolate chips if you’re using them.  Spread batter in prepared pan and sprinkle top with raspberries.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden.  Cool in pan on a wire rack.  Once cool remove from pan by lifting foil.  Cut into squares and drizzle with melted white chocolate.

White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Cookies

Posted on Feb 13, 2013 in Cooking, Desserts, Featured

WCCM Cookies

These cookies are highly addicting!  Soft, chewy and delicious!  I have to take them to a neighbor or share with a friend or I end up eating way too many!  Have the recipe handy because your friends will be asking for it.

White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Cookies

 

2 3/4 cups of flour (I use King Arthur)

1 teaspoon of baking soda

3/4 teaspoon of salt

1 cup/2 sticks of butter, softened so it is almost all melted and slightly cooled

3/4 cup of sugar

3/4 cup of brown sugar

2 eggs

1 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla

1 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips

1 cup of chopped macadamia nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line cookie sheets with silpat liners or parchment paper.  In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt.  In the bowl of an electric mixer beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy, using the paddle attachment.  Add eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.  Turn mixer to low and slowly add the dry ingredients.  Beat just until combined.  Stir in white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.  Drop by rounded teaspoons onto prepared baking sheets.  Bake for 8 minutes, or until the bottoms are golden, then let sit for 2 minutes before moving to a cooling rack.   The tops of the cookies may look underdone, but will set more as they cool.  Do not over bake!  These are AMAZING warm out of the oven!
