Chocolate Chunk Macadamia Nut Cookies

| Christy Rost
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup butter flavor shortening
  • 1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chunks
  • 2/3 cup Macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

In large bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter, shortening, and sugars until light. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until thoroughly combined.

Using a large spoon, gradually stir the flour mixture into the creamed mixture to form a soft dough. Stir in the chocolate chunks and the Macadamia nuts. Drop well-rounded tablespoons of cookie dough onto lightly greased cookie sheets, leaving 4 inches between each cookie.

Bake in a preheated oven 11 to 13 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown. Remove from the oven, cool 1 minute, and transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool.

Recipe makes 3 dozen 4-inch cookies.
