Pink Dalmatians

From Carma's Cafe

1.75 cups flour
.75 teaspoon baking powder
.5 teaspoon baking soda
.5 teaspoon salt
.75 cup butter, softened (6 ounces)
.75 cup light brown sugar
1/3 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg
2 cups white chocolate morsels (1 bag)
1 cup dried cranberries (such as Craisins®)
.75 cup chopped macadamia nuts

In a medium size bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In another bowl (or stand mixer) cream the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy. Beat egg and vanilla into butter/sugar mixture. Add the flour mixture to the butter/sugar mixture about 1/3 at a time being careful not to overmix. Stir in cranberries, white chocolate and macadamia nuts.

Drop by full tablespoons onto silpat or parchement lined cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake at 325° for approx. 11 minutes.

For larger "cafe size" cookies drop ice cream scoop (1/4 cup) mounds of dough and bake for approx. 13 minutes.
