I tried these cookies sometime right after thanksgiving after finding them off Cookie Madness. All I can say is WOW...these are sooo de.li.cious!!! Man don't skip out on the Bailey's...that's what makes these cookies!!! This recipe is a definite keeper!!
White Chocolate Chunk Cookies
2 sticks butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp Bailey’s
3 cups cake flour (see substitution below*)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt (3/4 tsp if using unsalted butter)
1 cup chopped macadamia nuts, lightly toasted before chopping
9oz chopped white chocolate
Preheat oven to 375*F degrees. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and both sugars. Beat in eggs, vanilla and Baileys. Stir or sift together cake flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in nuts and white chocolate. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto a parchment lined pan. Bake for 11-13 minutes.
Makes 4 dozen
*Cake Flour Substitute: If you don’t have any cake flour on hand, use this substitution. For every 2 cups flour, the substitute is 1 3/4 flour plus 1/4 cup cornstarch. This recipe calls for 3 cups of flour, so you’d want to use 2 1/2 cups plus 2 Tbsp flour and 6 Tbsp cornstarch.
