White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

 It's been awhile since I've written. I've been sick the past week and haven't felt like doing anything, much less baking. I was finally able to bake today (thank goodness)!!

 We had a cookout at my Aunt and Uncle's house tonight. I knew we would be grilling out which would be fine for Marshal to eat, but the desserts he might not be able to eat. So I decided to make him something gluten-free. He found a recipe online for White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookies, but instead of following the recipe, we decide to use a Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix instead. I took the chocolate chips out and substituted with 1 cup of white chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of macadamia nuts. 


I followed the recipe on the box, adding 1 egg and 1 stick of softened butter to the flour mixture.


Mix with white chocolate chips and nuts...


Ghiradelli Chocolate is soooo good! 


Finished product...I made them pretty big so they took about 15-20 minutes or so to get brown. 

Everyone at the cookout loved these! My parents, aunts and uncles, cousins...even my grandfather, who I wasn't sure would like them being gluten-free, liked them. He even took some to-go! Marshal loved them too! 

This was my first time trying a Betty Crocker Gluten Free mix and they got rave reviews! Can't wait to try other mixes!
