Soft, chewy cookies, so good they are supposed to garner marriage proposals! Note: marriage proposals are not guaranteed. Prep time includes 30 minutes for the dough to chill.
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1 ¼ cups light brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats (quick oats will work in a pinch)
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped macadamia nuts
  1. Preheat the oven to 325. You can line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean up, but an ungreased cookie sheet will work just fine.
  2. Mix the melted butter and sugars together on medium speed. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla, and mix until combined.
  3. Add the flour, oats, baking soda, kosher salt, and cinnamon. Continue mixing on medium speed until the dough comes together. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl. Mix in the white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts by hand.
  4. Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes.
  5. Scoop out the dough by the rounded tablespoonful and roll into balls. Place them 2" apart on the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 14-18 minutes.
  7. Let the cookies cool for a few minutes before removing from the baking sheet to cool completely.
