  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup plus 2 tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts, chopped



Preheat oven to 375 degrees.


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.


In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.


In a large bowl, beat butter until smooth. Add both sugars and vanilla extract and beat for about 2 minutes or until light and fluffy.


Add eggs, one at a time and mix well in between.


Add the flour mixture into the wet mixture and fold using a rubber spatula just until the flour is mixed in. Add the white chocolate chips, cranberries and nuts and just mix until they are incorporated.


Take about 1/4 cup of dough and roll into a ball. Place on cookie sheet, allowing plenty of room to spread out. I usually can fit 8 cookies on each sheet.


Bake for 11-14 minutes or until the edges just begin to brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before you remove to cool completely on wire racks.
