Who Stole the Cookie From the Cookie Jar?
October 15, 2011
The best thing to eat with a cold glass of milk is a fresh-from-the-oven cookie. Get your baking mitts ready as we enter the holiday season by testing out your newest recipes during Cookie Month. Ah yes, a celebration where cookie eating and making is encouraged. Sounds good to me!
Try this recipe for one of my favorite cookies - White Chocolate Coconut Macadamia:
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (12 ounce) package white chocolate chips
1 cup flaked coconut, toasted, if you like
3/4 cup macadamia nuts or 3/4 cup walnuts, chopped
Heat oven to 375 degrees.
In small bowl, mix the flour, baking powder & soda & salt.
In large bowl, combine the butter, sugars & vanilla extract. Beat at high speed, scraping the bowl often, beat mixture until creamy (1-2 minutes).
Add in the egg, beat until well mixed (1 to 2 minutes).
Reduce the speed to low, gradually adding in flour mixture.
Beat well after each addition (1 to 2 minutes).
With your hands, stir in the white chips, coconut & nuts.
By rounded TB, drop the dough onto nongreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 8-11 minutes or until edges are slightly browned.
Let cookies cool for 2 minutes before removing to cool on rack.
