White Chocolate Cookies w/ Macadamia Nuts


For Christine's Sweet 16 Birthday, she requested a homemade giant cookie - white chocolate chip with macadamia nuts. The following is the recipe for her favorite cookie - super-sized for her birthday.

WHITE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES WITH MACADAMIA NUTS

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cream together until smooth:
--1 cup butter, softened
--3/4 cup sugar
--3/4 cup brown sugar
--1 tsp. vanilla

Then, beat and add:
--2 eggs

Mix together and add gradually:
--2 1/4 cups unsifted flour
--1 tsp. baking soda

Stir in:
--1 pkg. (12 oz) white chocolate chips
--1 pkg (6 oz) chopped Macadamia nuts

Spread half of cookie dough onto ungreased round pizza pan. Bake 12 to 20 minutes in 375 degree oven (check every minute after first 12 minutes). Be careful not to over bake! Cool on wire rack. You may eat this plain, or top with your favorite frosting. Makes 2 giant cookies, or left-over dough can be frozen for up to 3 months.
