There’s a cute story behind these cookies too, I posted them a while back but since a friend of mine mentioned that today is National Cookie Day, here it is again:

1   1/2 sticks butter, softened

1/3 cup white sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 2/3 cups flour

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

2 cups white chocolate chips

1 cup shredded coconut

3/4 cups macadamia nuts (or pecans)

Combine flour., baking powder, baking soda and salt and set aside.

In mixing bowl, combine sugars, vanilla and butter and mix on medium speed until blended. Add egg and continue until smooth. Fold in coconut, flour mixture, then nuts, white chocolate chips. Mix thoroughly.

Scoop out onto parchment or silicone lined baking sheet.

Bake 10-12 minutes until just lightly browned. For chewy cookies, bake 9-10 minutes, for crispy cookies bake 12-13 minutes.
