Ingredients
Batter:
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ¾ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • ½ cup macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cut toasted sweetened coconut
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare one 9x9x2 inch square pan; lightly grease the pan with shortening.
Batter:
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and brown sugar; use an electric mixer or wooden spoon and beat together until mixture appears light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat until thoroughly mixed. Add flour, baking powder, and salt; stir until well mixed. Add white chocolate chips, nuts, and coconut; stir until mixed.
  2. Bake: Spread the dough evenly in the baking pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Leave cookie in pan to cool; place baking pan on a wire cooling rack to cool. Cut into 2 inch squares.
Tip: My favorite tool to cut bar cookies is a stainless steel dough scraper; simply push the dough scraper straight down into the cookie for straight cuts. Or use a pizza cutter or small kitchen knife to cut the cookie into bars.
