As a female, I love chocolate. I have always had a sweet tooth for it. As a teenager I could eat a whole block of chocolate in one sitting… Now that I’m older I’m less likely to binge on a whole block… It might still happen, but it’s not as frequent anymore. Regardless of age, I’ll probably always still have that sweet tooth for chocolate!
One type of chocolate I really enjoy is white chocolate. It’s almost the forgotten chocolate: we always see desserts containing milk chocolate or dark chocolate, and less desserts with white chocolate. Because it’s rarer, it always feels like a special treat to eat it.
That’s why I love making cookies with white chocolate. It’s a little treat to myself and anyone who eats them! The best pairing in cookies with white chocolate has to be macadamia’s. They give the cookies a bit of texture and perfectly compliment the white chocolate.
It’s even better when the cookies have a goey centre. Maybe that’s why the cookies from Subway always tasted so good?
Now that I’m gluten intolerant, I can’t enjoy most white chocolate and macadmia cookies. That’s why I enjoy baking them at home – I can easily whip up these bad boys at home and not miss out on the chocolatey-gooey-centre-sweet-goodness.
