I'm eating the Trim, Healthy Mama way now, but this recipe was saved in draft before those days. :-)
These bars are my new favorite baking recipe and to think they happened by accident! Okay, it was more a result of me being lazy than anything else.
White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies are my favorite cookies in the world. I decided to make some one day, doubled the recipe, and then figured it would take too much time to roll the dough balls. So I dumped all the batter into a baking sheet and baked them until they were golden on top and chewy in the middle.
All the flavor and goodness of my favorite cookie in a fraction of the time. Plus, I can cut the squares as big or small (usually big...er, always big) as I want.
- 2 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
- 2 cups white chocolate chips
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
In a large bowl, beat sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla together. Combine remaining ingredients together and gradually stir into the flour mixture.
Spread batter evenly into a 12"x17" baking pan. Bake at 350 for 30-35min or until knife comes out clean. Cool before cutting into bars.
Betcha can't eat just one!
