I've been on a white chocolate kick recently. I ordered loads of white chocolate on cyber Monday to test in a different recipe, but then I just had to try these as well. I love buttery, crunchy macadamia nuts, and sweet, creamy white chocolate. What a great combination!
These cookies use the simple cassava flour base that nearly all my cookies use. I just love how they're simple to make, and they turn out every single time! This time I really loaded them up with white chocolate and nuts because it wanted them chock full of texture and flavor and goodies.
I know that lately I haven't posted much besides.....sweets. I promise to get back to vegetables and such soon. That's what January is for, right? I just have so many holiday ideas, and many haven't even made it to the blog yet. I guess you'll just have to wait until next year for more, haha.
Alright, let's get down to it and make some more TREATS!
White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies
1/2c palm shortening
1/2c maple syrup
1t vanilla extract
160g cassava flour
1/2t baking soda
1/2c macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
1/2c white chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together shortening, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
- In a small bowl combine the flour, gelatin, baking soda, and salt.
- Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, and using a rubber spatula, stir to combine.
- Add the white chocolate and nuts, and stir to combine well.
- Divide the dough into 12 balls and put them on the parchment lined baking sheet. These may seem large, but they won't spread much. If you make them smaller, adjust the cooking time so they don't overbake.
- With damp fingers, lightly press the top of each cookie to flatten it slightly. These will not spread much during baking.
- Bake the cookies for 10 minutes, then allow to cool on the counter before eating.
