Lime Coconut White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies

Mmmm...these cookies have a fantastic flavor!!  They also freeze well, so you don't have to eat them all in one sitting.  Or share them...they will impress.

Recipe from Our Best Bites

2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and cooled until luke warm
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg + 1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup chopped white chocolate or white chocolate chips
1 cup coconut (I did NOT toast it, but you can.)
1 cup toasted macadamia nuts
1 1/2-2 tablespoons grated lime zest (1-2 limes)

If you haven’t melted your butter yet, do that so it has time to cool off.
Heat oven to 325 degrees.  Mix flour, salt, and baking soda together in medium bowl; set aside.
Mix butter and sugars until thoroughly blended. Mix in egg, yolk, and vanilla. Add dry ingredients;mix until combined.

Add white chocolate chips, coconut, macadamia nuts, and lime zest.  Mix to distribute.
Scoop cookie dough into balls and place on parchment lined baking sheets.  Bake until cookies are set around outer edges, yet centers are still soft and puffy, and appear slightly under-baked, about 9-10 minutes (all ovens are different, keep an eye on them!)  Cool cookies on cookie sheets for a few minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.
