These are a sweet toffee flavoured cookie with plenty of crunch.

Golden Nugget Cookies
160g light brown sugar
180g butter, softened

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 ½ cups plain flour

½ cup self raising flour

¼ cup rice flour

½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
200 grams block white chocolate (normal chocolate smashed up) or caramel milk buds
200 grams chopped macadamia nuts or blanched almonds

¼ cup of milk (if mixture is a little dry only)

Preheat oven to 180-200°C

Soften sugar and butter and whip together until very light and fluffy.  Add eggs and vanilla, mix well.

Add flours, salt and baking soda to sugar/egg mixture, add milk if required.

When well mixed, add chocolate chunks, and nuts.

 

Mix into a thick dough, form into a log and wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for half an hour. 

Slice the log with a sharp knife, making thick, generous cookie discs.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until slightly brown on top - a little bit longer if you want a crisp toffee style cookie.

Makes around 2 dozen.
