Butterscotch Macadamia Cookies

Hey Blog peeps!  Apologies again for the long pause between recipes.  Having a baby is a lot of work, it turns out. HAHA. That probably is not a huge surprise to many of you, but this is definitely more time consuming than I initially anticipated.  Holy diapers. and Laundry. And lack of nap time. yikes.

Yesterday my sister was on baby duty keeping him well entertained, so I decided to whip up a twist on an old favorite, butterscotch macadamia nut cookies. yummers.

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder
dash salt
1 1/4 cups flour
1 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup macadamia nuts, chopped

Per the usual process, start with the butter and sugar, then mix in the other ingredients, leaving the chips and nuts for last.  Then roll into 1 inch balls, and spread out on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

Bake at 375F for 10  minutes, and voila!

These were very tasty and gooey straight out of the oven.  I am currently struggling to not eat every last one of them.  Makes about a dozen cookies.  Enjoy!
