White Chocolate Chip and Macadamia Nut Cookies

Be sure to take the cookies out at the 10 minute mark, even if they look a little underdone. The cookies will continue to bake on the sheet for a few minutes once out of the oven.

What You Need:

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 10-ounce bag of white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped macadamia nuts

What You Do:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line three baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Sift flour, baking soda and salt into a medium bowl.
  • In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the sugars and softened butter until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined.
  • Add the flour mixture to the dough and mix on low speed until incorporated.
  • Remove bowl from the stand. Fold in the white chocolate chips and nuts with a rubber spatula. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for about 30 minutes.
  • Using a cookie scoop, drop dough rounds 2 inches apart onto the baking sheet. Bake for ten minutes, rotating the baking sheets halfway into the baking time.
  • Place baking sheets on cooling racks and cool completely. Makes about three dozen cookies.

White Hot Chocolate

What You Need:

  • 2 cups heavy cream, divided into 1-cup measurements
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • Two tablespoons sugar

What You Do:

  1. Place one cup cream and all the milk in a saucepan and heat on medium high until bubbles start to form around the edges of the saucepan.
  2. Remove from heat and whisk in the chocolate chips and vanilla until the chips have completely melted and the mixture is fully blended.
  3. In a stand mixer fitted with a whisk, beat the remaining cream for several minutes, until soft peaks begin to form. Add the sugar and beat until the cream is thick enough to dollop onto the hot chocolate.
  4. Top the white chocolate with the whipped cream and serve.  Makes 4-6 servings.
