White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies-Big Chunks of goodness
Friday, 2 September 2011 | posted by Simply bakes

Hello everyone SB readers! Today i have for you White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies. Mmm, the macadamia nuts are rich creamy, being able to really compliment the melt in your mouth smooth white chocolate chips. It is truly a combination to die for!

Do you know that white chocolate chips arent really considered as chocolate? This is because unlike chocolate which is made up of Cocoa, sugar and milk, white chocolate is made up of Cocoa butter and sugar. I was really craving for some big chunks of cookies this week, something homey, something with bags full of flavour. Chocolate chip cookies immediately came to mind. Many people out there like me, are searching for the best chocolate chip cookies in the world. Well, since i don't have semi sweet chocolate in my pantry, i decided to settle with White Chocolate Chips. I cant guarantee absolute satisfaction or if it is truly the best white chocolate chip cookie ever but i promise, this one has got flavour. :)

In one taste, savour it carefully. You can taste vanilla first then the honey flavour of the sweet brown sugar before the white chocolate fills your mouth. White chocolate is definitely much sweeter compared to semi sweet chocolate. So if you are not a big fan of sweetness, like my dad, you might want to substitute the white chocolate chips with semi sweet chocolate chips. It works just as well too:)

The most perfectly baked chocolate chip cookies would be crisp on the edges and soft and chewy in the middle. I like mine to stay a little longer in the oven because prefer it firm and crisp, not too soft and underdone. But its my personal preference so you can adjust the baking time depending on your oven and how 'welldone' you would like your cookies to be.

Adapted from My Baking Addiction Big Chocolate Chip Cookies as a base, http://www.mybakingaddiction.com/bigchocolate-chip-cookies/ 
2 sticks cold and cubed unsalted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon table or fine sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 cups good quality White chocolate chips or chunks
add in 1 cup of walnuts if you fancy them
Preheat oven to 180 degree celcius
1. In bowl of electric mixer fitted with paddle, cream together butter and sugars until well blended and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mix in vanilla and beat until well incorporated.
2. Add flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and mix until just combined. Gently fold in chocolate chips/chunks and nuts.
3. Transfer dough to clean work surface and gently mix dough by hand to ensure even distribution of ingredients.
4. Weigh out the dough into 30g portions and gently roll into a ball. (I got about 30 of them or more.)
4. Place each on sheet pan lined with parchment paper and bake in the preheated oven 15-20 minutes depending on how gooey and rawish you like the interior, until very lightly browned, taking care not to overbake.
5. Let cool on rack and store what you don’t immediately eat in an airtight container.
