XL milk chocolate chip cookies with ground macadamia nuts

To occupy my time before the Bills game tomorrow, I decided to bake a couple of things. Three to be exact, for Damar Hamlin, who continues to recover after a cardiac arrest event during a game on January 2nd. These are milk chocolate chip cookies with ground macadamia nuts. Not sure why I decided to grind them up (with my old school nutgrinder), but I did. These are pretty big cookies. I used 1/2 cup scoops of dough and chilled them overnight so they did not spread out too much.

Remember to spoon your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup. Chill your dough. And preheat your oven for 20 minutes before baking so the stove cycles to the right temp. Also, do not overcook these. They will seem doughy, but will firm up and be ok after they cool. Or if you eat them warm, is there anything wrong with gushy cookies?

  • Ingredients list
  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • Finely ground macadamia nuts (opt)

Directions – cream butter, brown sugar, and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients. Fold in chips and ground nuts. Scoop out 1/2 cups of dough and roll into balls. Chill a few hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners. Stagger cookies on prepared sheets. Bake 11 to 15 minutes. I did mine for 13 and a half. Cool completley. Store in covered container.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! If you make these, let me know how they turn out. Wishing you a day filled with peace and joy. #gobills
