White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

I think I’m really missing Hawaii. I walked by the macadamia nuts, at the grocery store the other day, and I could almost feel the warmth of Hawaii again.  I couldn’t pass them up.  Ok, I saw the price of $8.49 and I did pass them by, but I kept thinking about them.  Fast forward to a few days later.  I was at the drug store, around the corner from our house, and they had a smaller container that was on sale for less than $5.00.
I also had a package of white chocolate chips in the pantry, leftover from my Holiday baking.  I smell cookies, don’t you?

Here’s the recipe:
1 Cup Crisco shortening (original, not butter flavor)
3/4 Cup brown sugar
3/4 Cup white sugar
Mix until soft and fluffy.

2 Eggs
1 and 1/2 tsp vanilla
Mix just until blended.

Dry ingredients:
2 and 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
Mix it up and add a 6oz package of macadamia nuts (slightly chopped) and about 8 oz of white chocolate chips.

Bake for 10 minutes (or less) on 350 degrees. My oven is a standard oven, not convection, and this is what I do.

Happy baking!
