  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes with an electric mixer on medium speed. Melt the butter over low heat and add to egg mixture along with vanilla. Mix well. Sift the flour, baking soda and salt onto a piece of wax paper, and add to egg mixture beating slowly. Mix until just blended. Coarsely chop the white chocolate and fold into mixture. Stir in macadamia nuts.

  • Pour batter into baking pan. Bake for 28 to 30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Place on wire rack and let cool.

These were the worst bars I've ever attempted to make. I made them once and they turned out horrible. After the instructed cooking time they were completely raw so I cooked for double the time. They were still undercooked and then they turned rock solid over night and we threw the rest away. I made a second batch the next night thinking I had mis-read the directions and they turned out even worse. The butter content seemed way too high and it amounted to a gross mess that I wouldn't dare eat. It was such a disappointment because this recipe was to be a highlight of my husband's birthday weekend. He ate some of both batches with reservations not eating 75% of them. Unless I mis-read the instructions incorrectly twice in a row this recipe is seriously inaccurate. Would not recommend. Read More

These were delicious right out of the oven but after a few days they develop a hard and crumbly crust and the inside gets stale even if stored in a tin. But the night they were baked they were TO DIE FOR!!!!! Read More

Disappointed - not chewy more cake-like. I did double recipe so maybe that was problem? I did not overbake took them out at 25 min. and golden. Maybe they should be a little underbaked? I am still looking for a moist chewy bar cookie with macadamia nuts and chocolate. Read More

if i could give this recipe zero stars i would - i concur w/ the other individual who said the butter content was WAY too high. i baked them for 15 minutes longer than recommended and they were still drastically overcooked. i actually put the cooked dough into a bowl after i realized there weren't cooked enough to serve. tried making dough balls out of them and i could actually ring the butter out of the cooked dough.
