White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies (base cookie recipe)

14 Jun

Adapted from Cooking on the Side

These aren’t necessarily my cookie of choice, but I ended up needing to make them this weekend and the recipe is one of the best I’ve tried for cookies.  It would be a great base recipe for add-ins like chocolate chip cookies, M&M cookies, or any other type of cookie.

** This version made about 3 dozen cookies for me, but I halved the recipe which originally makes about 5 dozen**

1 stick of butter, softened
very SCANT 3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg, at room temperature
1 1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
add in-s like white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts, or chocolate chips, etc.

Preheat the oven to 350.

 Cream together the butter and the sugars with a beater, until fluffy.

Add the vanilla and the egg, beat together.

Blend in the flour 1/2 a cup at a time.

Beat in the baking soda and salt.

Stir in your add-ins, as much as you’d like.

Bake on parchment0lined baking sheets by the teaspoon-full for 10-12 minutes.

Let cool & devour.
