The 3rd annual Sweet Treats Cookie Tour was a big success. Thought I’d share one of the cookie recipes.
White Chip Island Cookies
1 2/3 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 cups white chocolate chips
1 cup coconut
3/4 cup macadamia nuts or walnuts, chopped
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Combine flour, baking powder, soda and salt in a small bowl. Beat butter, sugars and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in egg. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels, coconut and walnuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 8 to 11 minutes until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes and then transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 3 dozen cookies
