White Chocolate Chips and Macadamia Cookies? Scones?

Can I call that cookies? Maybe fat cookies will do?
Or I can disguise it as a scone?

This is what happened...
In my head,
There was a image of a dozen perfectly round, flat cookies lining up on the baking sheet.
And everything seems right during the "cookie" making process,

When I lid up the light in the oven,
I saw a dozen fat...scones?
What is that!?

Starring at those fatties...
I gradually transferring them to the rack,
Hoping that as the heat dissipates, the cookies will miraculously loose some of the weights..

Nope, that did not happen.

Kinda disappointed..(very I should say)..
I took a bite of my over weighted cookie,
Not bad at all!
Oh well, I guess having supersized cookies once a while isn't a bad idea.

Ingredients (for 15 fat ones or 20 skinny ones)?

1/2 cup of butter (room temperature)
1/3 cup of brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 tablespoon of honey
1 cup of all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of white chocolate chips
1/2 cup of chopped macadamia


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheits.

Mix the melted butter and the brown sugar till well blended.
Add the egg and beat till soft and fluffy.
Then pour in few drops of vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon of honey, and mix for a little bit longer.

Have another bowl ready,
Mix the all purpose flour, salt, and baking soda,
Then transfer those ingredients to the other bowl, mix everything till well combined.
Stir in the white chocolate chips and macadamia.

Have a parchment paper line up on the baking sheet,
Scoop the mixture as little balls onto the sheet,

Here's where my mistake happened,
Make sure you don't get too greedy and scoop a gigantic portion to the baking sheet,
Just a little bit will do, melon baller will be a good tool here,
Maybe press it down a bit can help also.

Set those mixture about 1 inch apart.
Bake for 10 to 13 minutes, or till slightly brown on the top.

(Even though it's fat, my "scone" still tastes pretty good!)

  2. Yummy!!!

    I love the shape of these cookies/scones. :) It feels like there's a lot to bite down on, and more chips on the inside!

    Happy holidays,


    P.S. I deleted my previous comment because my keyboard spazzed and I made some typos. :)

    Haha typos are ok here,
    You know my blog is written with broken Engrish right?
    Merry Christmas!

  4. I hate to bring the bearer of bad news, but I think macadamias are really bad for you. Wow, I sound like a chick.

    At least, that's all I was going to say, until I decided to do some research. I have a box of choco with macs that says 43% saturated fat, while a lot of websites say monounsaturated. Hmmm...time to rip open that box and start indulging.

    Haha oh well,
    Having macadamia once a while should be fine, at least it'll make me happy!

    Happy new year there!

  6. Looks yummy! The cookies/scones look very rustic and big, chockful of nuts and chips!

    I once tasted a scone that was like a cookie instead, so don't feel bad of this scone cookie combo :). I'd call it a fat, delicious cookie.

    Just went to Vegas a few days ago and it was full of people! Have a happy holiday.

    P.S. I used to be WSL98787 but I have a new account due to the fact I made a new blog :).

    Thank you so much!
    I was pretty sad that my cookies turned out like a scone.
    I brought it to the office, I guess it tastes alright cz my friends finished almost all of it!

    By the way,
    Happy new year!!
