  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • In 8-inch saute pan, bring butter to golden brown (~5 to 8 minutes).
  • Stir in brown sugar and let stand in refrigerator for 45 minutes.
  • Grate 3oz white chocolate. Coarsely chop remaining 5oz. Set aside.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • Place cooled butter in mixer. Using the paddle attachment, add granulated sugar and beat until fluffy.
  • Beat in egg and vanilla.
  • Beat in dry ingredients.
  • Add grated white chocolate and macadamia nuts. Stir until combined.
  • Note: I refrigerated my dough while I heated up the oven here.
  • Roll dough into 1 1/2-inch balls. Dip top in coarsely chopped white chocolate. (I skipped this step) Place on non-stick cookie sheet, spaced 3-inches apart.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes. (Be careful, I cooked my cookies only ~8 minutes. Watch them to see!) Cool on rack.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week.
