Here is a recipe for some very good cookies. These cookies were once described as 'better than sex' by a platonic female friend.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1 cup butter
- 2 cups white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 2/3 cups vanilla baking chips
- 4 ounces macadamia nuts, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
In a large mixer bowl, beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla extract; beat until light and fluffy.
In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually blend into butter mixture.
Stir in vanilla chips, and macadamia nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 9 minutes. (Do not overbake; cookies will be soft. They will puff while baking; flatten upon cooling.) Cool slightly, remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
