Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange rind
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 (3.5-ounce) jar lightly salted macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped

How to Make It

  1. Beat butter at medium speed of an electric mixer 2 minutes or until creamy. Gradually add sugars, beating well. Add egg, orange rind, and flavorings.

  2. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients. Add to butter mixture, beating at low speed just until blended. Stir in nuts and white chocolate morsels. Cover and chill dough 2 hours.
