Chewy on the inside crisp and buttery on the outside. These are really delicious and the dough is very versatile. You can add any kind of chocolate, nuts, or berries you prefer.
- 1⁄2 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 cup chopped macadamia nuts
- 1⁄2 cup dried sweetened cranberries
- 1 1⁄2 cups white chocolate chunks
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- In a medium bowl, with electric mixer, cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add.
- eggs and vanilla and beat until just combined. Set aside.
- Sift together flour, soda, and salt. Add milk to the butter mixture and then add the flour mixture a little bit at a time until combined.
- Batter should be stiff.
- In another bowl, combine nuts, cranberries, and white chocolate. Then add to batter, stirring only to.
- blend. Drop by heaping tablespoons onto a greased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake for approximately 11 to 13 minutes. Cool on wire rack immediately as they tend to stick to the pan if they sit there too long.
Although I have a definite sweet tooth, I took the previous reviewer's tip & cut back a bit especially on the granulated sugar! Other than that, though, I followed the recipe right on down & they made a great addition to the cookie buffet we had for tenants in our mobile home park!

Made for PAC spring 2008. This is a nice recipe that is a little bit different. I made the recipe as posted, and found it much too sweet for my taste. Next time I would cut the sugars in half. With that said, my kids loved them!! The first batch didn't spread out all that much so I flattened the 2nd batch before cooking. They turned out just as described chewy and crunchy :) Thanks for posting.
