White Chocolate, Tart Cherry, Macadamia Nut Cookies
White Chocolate, Tart Cherry, Macadamia Nut Cookies


2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 sticks softened unsalted butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp Baker's Salt
1 tsp Tahitian Cookie Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Dark Cherry Extract
2 large eggs
1cup tart dried cherries, roughly chopped
1 cup chopped white chocolate or white chocolate chips
1 cup chopped roasted, salted Macadamia nuts

These cookies are a great balance of sweet, tart and rich. Each bite delivers salty, roasted macadamias with tart-sweet cherries alongside smooth, buttery white chocolate. We employ our usual baking trick by pairing extracts to coax big flavors from the ingredients. Here we use a combo of our Tahitian Cookie Vanilla Extract and Dark Cherry Extract. These are decadent cookies. A must for holiday cookie swaps and make for a lovely gift.


1.Preheat oven to 375°F.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda. Set aside. In a stand mixer, cream the butter, sugars, salt and Bourbon Vanilla Extract. Beat in the eggs one at a time, stopping to scrape the bowl.
3.Beat in the dry ingredients a bit at a time, stopping to scrape the bowl. Stir in the cherries, white chocolate and macadamia nuts.
4.Drop by spoonfuls onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake until lightly brown around the edges and firm in the center.
