Copycat Great American White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies


1 ¾ cup all purpose flour
8 tablespoons unsalted butter slightly softened (do not melt)
½ cup brown sugar packed
½ cup white sugar
1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs beaten
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 cup white chocolate chips (or chunks)
½ cup roasted macadamia nuts chopped

Slightly soften your butter. It should still be solid but warmed just a touch to be able to mix in. I microwaved mine for about 10 seconds. Do not melt the butter, you want to just soften it slightly.
In a large mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients.
Add in the dry ingredients except for the white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.
Mix well with a hand mixer until the dough is well mixed. Do not over mix.
Stir in the white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts with a large spoon.
Use a large cookie scoop (about 2.5 tbsp) to form your cookies and roll them into balls.
Chill your cookies in the fridge for 30 to 45 minutes.
Bake on a greased baking sheet for 8 to 10 minutes. Let the cookies rest on the sheet for 5 minutes before transferring.
