White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

I've tried two different recipes for white chocolate macadamia nut cookies. I think I prefer this one. The first time I tried making them I couldn't find any macadamia nuts. Guess where I found them? Target! They were pricey, but on the bright side, they were already chopped. :)

White Chocolate
Macadamia Nut Cookies

1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 3/4 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts

Preheat oven 350 degrees.

Melt butter. (You can do this in the microwave or on the stove top.) In mixer bowl, beat brown sugar and melted butter.

Add egg. Beat again. Add milk and vanilla extract. Beat.

In small bowl, combine baking soda, flour and salt. Slowly add flour mixture to butter/sugar mixture. Beat on low until thoroughly incorporated.

Stir in white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.

Scoop onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake 9-10 minutes. Allow to cool for a few minutes before moving to cookie sheet.

Yields: about 3 dozen cookies
