One of our team members does NOT like chocolate (how that can be I do not know!). So for her I came up with this easy to make variation of our Chocolate Chip Cookie (which is our most requested recipe).
Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or leave ungreased.
Combine flour, baking soda, salt, ground ginger and crystallized ginger. Mix well.
In a large mixing bowl beat the butter, white sugar and brown sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat until thoroughly mixed into batter. Stir in vanilla.
Add the flour mixture in thirds, beat until just mixed in after each addition.
Stir in the white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.
Drop by rounded tablespoon onto prepared baking sheets.
Bake for 9–11 or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
