Macadamia Choc Chip Cookies

If you want cookies like Subway follow this recipe.  Chewy soft cookies with the crunch of macadamia and the sweetness of choc chips.  Ready to eat in 40 minutes


- 175g softened butter
- 1/3 cup fine black sugar
- 1 tbls white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 1 1/8 cup of flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 cup chopped macadamia nuts
- 3/4 cup choc chips


Pre-heat oven to 190C.  For fan-forced oven i use 180C.
Look at the gorgeous mix
In a medium mixing bowl cream the butter and sugars.  i have made the mistake of using granulated brown sugar when the shop didn't have a fine packed sugar.  The grains don't dissolve and your left with sugar granules in your cookies.  So wait for the fine grain...  Once creamed add the egg and vanilla and beat well.

In a separate bowl sift flour and baking soda together.  Add gradually to the butter mixture and the mixture will dry out a lot. (Cookie mixtures should be a bit on the dry side).

Add nuts and choc chips and stir in well.

Ice-cream scoop gives consistent size

Using an ice-cream scoop or spoon, spoon out round balls.  I make mine almost 1.5 inch diameter to give a 3 inch diameter cookie.  The cookie dough will spread as it cooks but then the baking soda will kick in to limit its lateral extension.  (Very technical ya?)...

12-15 minutes in the oven till golden brown and a little firm to the touch. Transfer to a grill till completely cool.

Perfect with a hot coffee.
