Ever tasted a Royal Cookie from
Nordstrom Cafe? We recently got our hands on one of these yummies. And WowZer! It’s like a cookie and magic bar rolled into one. Coconut, macadamia nuts, and chocolate chips. Incredible!!!Thankfully we found a copycat recipe and this Saturday we will be recreating our version of these goodies in the comforts of our own kitchen. Here’s to a Royally Sweet Saturday!!!
- 3 cups unbleached flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup butter flavored Crisco
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 large egg whites
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- ¾ cup chopped macadamia nuts
- 1 cup ounce bag dark chocolate chips
- 1 cup Heath Bits
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, powder and salt.
In the bowl of your electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the Crisco and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 5 full minutes. Beat in each egg white one at a time. Beat in the vanilla extract.
Add the dry ingredients and beat on low speed until just combined, scraping the bottom of the bowl if needed. Stir in the shredded coconut and macadamia nuts until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and heath.
Scoop out 1 1/2-inch sized balls of dough and place them on the parchment paper, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes, or until the cookies are just golden on the edges. Let the cookies cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a cooling rack.
