In college, I was a facilitator for a calculus study group. To make it more fun, I used to bring in homemade cookies. One of my students asked if I would make his favorite cookies, if his mom sent me the recipe. And so, here they are.


  • 8 Tblsp unsalted butter (1 stick)
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs slightly beaten
  • 1 cup plus 2 Tblsp flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ lb white chocolate chips (I use Ghiradelli)
  • 1 cup macadamia nuts
  • ½ cup almond slivers


  • Whisk the flour, baking soda and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the butte and sugars until smooth and creamy. Then add the eggs and vanilla.
  • Gradually beat in flour mixture.
  • Stir in the chocolate and nuts. Don't overmix.
  • Drop by rounded tablespoon onto a cookie sheet.
  • Bake at 325 for 12-15 minutes. The cookies will be slightly browned. Don't over bake.
  • Makes 32 cookies.
  • Note: Keeping the grill from the broiler pan on the rack below the cookie sheet will keep the cookies from getting too brown.
