the fun part:
* preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
#1.) in a medium size bowl, sift together your whites: flour, baking soda and salt. set aside.
#2.) with your electric mixer, cream together melted butter, and brown and white sugars. one at a time add the egg, egg yolk and vanilla extract.
#3.) gradually add the flour mixture to your batter, one scoop at a time. make sure your mixer is on slow speed so that the flour stays in your cookies - not all over the kitchen. (fun baking tip: draping a dish towel over your mix master can make sure that the flour doesn't get all over you as well!)
#4.) once the batter is ready (and not overmixed), stir in the chopped macadamia nuts and white chocolate by hand.
#5.) pick your brightest, shiniest baking tray*, grease, and evenly space out spoon size dollops of your dough. bake in your preheated oven for 12-15 minutes. take them out when you think they could stay in for a couple more minutes.. 'cause we all know slightly undercooked, chewy cookies are the best.
* bright shiny trays cook more evenly than dark-colored trays. this prevents your cookies from browning too quickly on the bottom. (if you inherit all your mom's old baking supplies like I do, lining your trays with heavy-duty aluminum foil will do just fine!)
what your body will like:
#1.) every second of delicious-ness.
#2.) the hugs you'll get when you give them out to your friends.
