White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies
From Betty Crocker Cookbook

1/2 cup butter flavored shortening
1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the shortening, butter, and sugars on medium high until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and mix to combine.

In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, soda, and salt. Add to the butter and sugar mixture and mix until just combined. Add the white chocolate chips and the macadamia nut cookies.

Spoon by the tablespoon onto the sheet pan lined with parchment paper, with about 2 inch spacing. Bake until lightly golden, about 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
