{Gluten Free} White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies


‘Tis the season for baking all the things.  Cookies are my favorite homemade sweets and white chocolate macadamia nut cookies are my husband’s favorite kind. I whipped up a batch using Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour for a gluten free variety (so we could share with some of our gluten sensitive friends) that was delicious and flavorful. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups gluten free flour (or all purpose flour if you don’t care about the gluten)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 
  • 1 cup brown sugar 
  • 1/2 cup sugar 
  • 1 cup Earth Balance, softened but not melted 
  • 2 large eggs 
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped macadamia nuts
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In medium bowl combine flour, soda and salt. Mix well, set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl combine sugars. Add butter and mix until a grainy paste is formed. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until blended.
  4. Add the flour mixture, macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips being careful not to over mix.
  5. Refrigerate dough for 10-15 minutes. This will prevent cookies from spreading too much during baking
  6. Drop dough in rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden. Move to cooling rack, pour a glass of milk and try not to devour the entire batch in a single sitting.
