Chocolate Brownie Cookies with Macadamia Nuts and White Chocolate Chips

Working in the public service generally means that your job security is pretty well assured. And while that is still largely the case, lately there has been a lot of insecurity and in fact things are feeling a whole lot less secure.

All that to say, morale around the office is pretty much rock bottom. But cookies help. I brought these cookies into the office this week and while, things still kind of suck, I think they helped take peoples minds off the insecurity we're all feeling for at least a minute.


8 Ounces chocolate chips
3 Tbs unsalted butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 large eggs
3/4 cup white chocolate chips or chunks
3/4 cup macadamia nuts, roasted and salted


1) Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

2)Melt butter and chocolate chips in a heat proof bowl over a pot of simmering water. Remove from heat.

3) Whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder in a separate bowl.

4) Whisk sugar, eggs, and vanilla into the chocolate mixture. Add the flour mixture all at once and fold over until just combined. Fold in the chopped macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips.

5) Bake for 10 minutes, being sure to turn the tray at the half way point. The cookies are best just slightly under-cooked.
