White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yesterday, there was a small window of time during which I had to leave for work and Hubby was still at work.

It happens.

I am eternally blessed because all that was needed was a phone call to my Dad.  His only request for his services? 

White chocolate chip cookies. 

I happily obliged.  

White Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup butter, soft
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 (12oz) bag white chocolate chips
1 cup macadamia nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350.

Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy.

Add eggs, one at a time.  Mix well, add vanilla.

Sift together dry ingredients.  Turn mixer to slow (slowest possible) and gradually add dry mixture to batter.

Stir in chips (and nuts) by hand.  Scoop heaping tablespoons of dough onto cookie sheets.  Bake 12-14 minutes, until edges lightly browned.

Remove and cool on sheet one minute, move to wire rack and cool completely.

Happy Friday!
