One of my all time favorite cookies is White Chocolate Macadamia nut cookies, especially from Mrs. Field’s. I saw this recipe for white chocolate macadamia nut blondies on Erin’s Food Files. She apparently got the recipe from Loves to Eat who got the recipe from Emeril.
The original recipe says to bake it in a 9 x9 pan, Erin cooked it in a 9×13 pan, but I used a 11×7 pan. I made a few other changes, so the recipe below is my version.
This recipe really needs a heavy duty mixer to mix it all up. It’s a very thick dough, looks just like cookie dough. I cooked mine for the full 30 minutes and took them out. When I served them they were a little under cooked. They were still good, but should have cooked a few more minutes. I think that roasting the macadamia nuts is what makes this blondie so fabulous. It definitely bring out more flavor from the nut.
These bars were very full of nuts and chips. I will probably reduce the amount slightly the next time I make them. I want to be able to taste the blondie part a little more. Theses babies aren’t low on calories either, it uses 1/2 pound of butter. Just share them with others, so you don’t eat the whole pan.
Also FYI, I will be taking Monday and Tuesday off. I am hoping to do a post Wednesday, but it will be later in the day. I have two great main dish recipes I’ll be sharing when I get back. They both use the crockpot too! They’ll help you keep your house cool this summer. I also have a great quick salad to share with you also. See you then.
