I haven’t baked anything for quite some time, partly because there are only two of us and chucking too much sugary cookies doesn’t seem like a good idea. However, a couple of weeks ago D sort of challenged me into baking some chewy cookies a la Subway and I was in the mood, so I decided to try Laura Vitale’s recipe of this white chocolate macadamia nut cookies. Both D and I love the result, delicious cookies that’s perfectly soft and chewy in the center.
