  • Giant Chewy White Chocolate & Macadamia Nut Cookies

    As crazy as it may sounds ( and those of you that know me realise that I am) we like nothing better than we have some time off from making Brownies is to actually bake for ourselves...it's a bit of a busmans timeout I realise.... but I just love filling our biscuit jar with our fave cookies and the kids love to help.

    I was also inspired by another friend who I have met through all the BBC Good Food Shows, the lovely Edd Kimber winner of the first series of The Great British Bake Off, we were running through various recipes in his new book and it reminded me of this family favourite. You can find Edd on Twitter @TheBoyWhoBakes

    Irresistible Giant Chewy White Chocolate & Macadamia Nut Cookies

    Great for Kids even better for adults. (Warning!! They tend to disappear straight from the baking sheet so if you were planning on loading your biscuit barrel in readiness for visitors, be sure to double the quantities!!)

    100g of butter at room temperature
    75g granulated sugar
    75g brown sugar
    1 large egg
    ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
    200g plain flour
    ½ teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    150g of white choc chip pieces
    Handful of macadamia nuts

    Heat the oven to 180C/350F

    Beat butter & both sugars until light & fluffy, add egg & vanilla extract, mix again

    Add the remaining dry ingredients and mix well, I use my KitchenAid mixer which then crushes the nuts and chocolate into smaller pieces.

    Using your hands roll into small balls and place on baking sheet flattening them into rounds about 3 inches in diameter.

    Bake for 11-14 minutes then cool on racks
    Makes approx 12
