Cranberry, macadamia nuts and white chocolate chip cookies
I'm not sure where I've gotten this recipe from but whom ever came up with it is a genius...I've been making these cookies for a few years now and every time try to make a different variation utilizing variety of liquors, chips and nuts. Today I'm using whiskey, white chocolate chips, dried cranberries and macadamia nuts. It might be an overkill but I like my cookies loaded..LOL I've tried brandy, grand marnier & Baileys Irish cream and all of them worked well.
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoon whiskey or other liquor of your choice.
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 cup of macadamia nuts.
Preheat oven to 375'F. Spray cookie sheets with non stick spray.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs and whiskey. Combine the flour and baking soda; stir into the sugar mixture. Mix in the white chocolate chips, cranberries & macadamia nuts . Using ice cream scoop drop the dough onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Slightly under bake. Allow cookies to cool for 1 minute before transferring to cooling racks to cool completely.
