Thanks so much to all of you who read and commented on my son’s post about Southern BBQ, Georgia Style. I’m very grateful to you. If you’re a parent you know what it feels like when your kid does something good, even if they are old kids. I was thrilled to be able to show him the comments from people who feel the same way I do. He should start a blog.
He’s promised to do more posts for me from time to time but he says he’s too busy making a living to blog right now. Anyone need real estate in Atlanta? Al does real estate developing and sales and would love to hear from you.
It’s been a while since I went to Subway but I have to admit that every time I go there I can’t leave without a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie. I drove past Subway last week on my way to the shopping center and thought, “surely someone has come up with a clone recipe that I could make myself.”
Well, folks, someone did. Frankly, LOTS of people did. I’m so far behind the times. I looked at a lot of recipes (a LOT of recipes) and decided to work with the one I found on WarmVanillaSugar.com. I used a few less nuts, more vanilla, sifted the flour, etc but basically it’s her recipe with my changes.
- 3¼ cups all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1½ cups unsalted butter, softened
- 1½ cups firmly packed light brown sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup white chocolate, chopped (or use white choc chips)
- 1¼ cups coarsely chopped macadamia nuts
- Heat oven to 180C; 350F and grease baking sheets or line sheets with baking paper.
- Mix flour, baking soda and salt in a large bown and mix together or sift. (I sifted)
- Beat the butter and the sugars until creamy
- Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition
- Add vanilla extract and beat again - scrape down the side too
- On low speed add the flour mixture a cup at a time and mix well.
- Stir in the chocolate and nuts - you don't want to break these down.
- Drop by spoonful (or ice cream scoop) on baking sheet and bake for 13-15 minutes, depending upon how chewy you want your cookies. Check your oven, you might need more or less time.
- If you like your cookies chewy, keep them in an air tight container.
- This makes a lot. I baked 1½ dozen and have enough dough in the fridge for heaps more. I hope you like the cookies!
