Road Trip – Gluten Free White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

Road Trip – what a better time for junk food. Well, technically, I don’t really consider white chocolate macadamia cookies ‘junk food,’ but it’s definitely something I don’t eat all of the time. Here was my stab at some gluten free cookies. I had some macadamias and white chocolate chips I’ve been meaning to use, so I settled on these. Of course, you can use the same recipe and just substitute chocolate chips for the white chocolate and skip the nuts or use some other nuts. Play with your food. This recipe turned out pretty good. They’re a little chewy, with a slight crispy texture on the outside. And the white chocolate / macadamia mix is a great combination. Perfect road food. Enjoy!

½ Cup Butter or Vegan Butter Substitute, softened
½ Cup Shortening
1 Cup Brown Sugar
½ Cup Sugar
2 Large Eggs
2 Tbsp. Water
1 Tsp. Vanilla
1 ½ Cup Sweet Sorghum Flour
½ Cup Brown Rice Flour
¼ Cup Coconut Flour
¼ Cup Millet Flour
½ Tsp. Baking Powder
½ Tsp. Xanthan Gum
¼ Tsp. Salt
12 oz. White Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Chopped Macadamia Nuts

Preheat oven to 375º.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, shortening and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, and then the water and vanilla. In a separate mixing bowl, stir together the flours, xanthan gum, and baking powder. Slowly add to the butter mixture and mix thoroughly. Add in the white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.
Scoop onto ungreased baking sheets (I used a 2 tablespoon ice cream scoop). Slightly flatten the cookies. Bake in preheated oven for about 8-9 minutes, until bottom is golden brown. If baking 2 trays at the same time, switch the shelves half way through the baking time. Let cool for 2 minutes on baking sheets before removing to cooling racks. Makes about 4 dozen (or less if you eat a lot of the cookie dough).
