A royal treat of a cookie chocked-full of toasted macadamia nuts, toasted coconut flakes, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Follow the instructions to a perfect cookie!
1 cup macadamia nuts
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 cup salted butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons corn starch
1 1/4 cups rolled oats
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Crack egg into a small bowl and scramble to break up the yolk, set aside.
Get a medium-size saucepan hot and toast macadamia nuts for a few minutes on medium-low heat, stirring often, then remove to a small bowl and set aside.
Add coconut to the same heated pan and toast over medium-low heat for a few minutes stirring constantly then set aside in a separate small bowl.
Place 2 sticks of butter in the microwave and soften on low power (about 3) for 30 seconds at a time until butter is soft and starting to melt a little, turning sticks over after every 30 seconds. This will take about 1 1/2 – 2 minutes.
Place butter into a large bowl and using a mixer, cream until it is soft and smooth.
Add brown sugar and cream until well incorporated into the butter.
Mix in the set-aside egg.
Add vanilla and coconut extracts into the creamed mixture incorporating well.
In a medium bowl, sift togerther flour, baking soda, salt, and corn starch.
With a food processor, process oats until it’s broken up into small pieces, not into a fine flour, then stir into the sifted flour mixture.
Mix the flour mixture into the creamed butter a third at a time, don’t over mix.
Rough chop the macadamia nuts, leaving them in big chunks.
Stir in the nuts, coconut, and chocolate chips.
Cover bowl and refrigerate for about 2 hours.
Use a 1/4 cup ice cream scoop and place dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Press dough down to flatten a little before putting into the oven.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Let cool then serve.
You can skip refrigeration, but it does help the dough come together for the best cookie.
Dough may be stored in the freezer, defrost in the refrigerator before baking.
Decrease cooking time if making smaller sized cookies.
