Macadamia and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Macadamias are one of my favorite nuts and this is one of the few cookie recipes I've come across which incorporates these delicious legumes. The combination of both white and dark chocolate along with the wonderful flavor of the macadamia melt together with each bite of this cookie!


2 1/4 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 c. packed light brown sugar
3/4 c. butter, softened
1/4 c. sugar
1 large beaten egg
1/4 c. cream of coconut
3/4 c. macadamia nuts, chopped coarsely
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate morsels
6 oz white chocolate morsels
1/2 c. flaked coconut


Heat oven to 350 degrees.
In medium size bowl mix together the flour and baking soda. In a large bowl beat together the brown sugar, butter, and sugar until it becomes fluffy. Beat in the egg and the cream of coconut until blended. Then reduce the mixer to low speed and gradually add the flour mixture. Once blended, add the coconut, chocolates and macadamia nuts and mix by hand.
Drop by rounded teaspoons onto an ungreased baking sheet, keeping them about 2 inches apart. Bake in oven for 12 - 15 minutes, until they are lightly browned.

This recipes typically yields 48 cookies!
