This post is written as a part of my partnership with Rodelle. As always, all opinions are my own.
I’ve recently decided that I don’t have enough cookie recipes on the blog. I looked through all the amazing recipe I have, and there’s just not enough.
You never really can have too many cookie recipes, right?
One of my very favorite recipes from my cookbook is my Gluten-Free White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies. They are chewy, crunchy, and soft all at the same time. Seriously. And they are the best.
One of the things that makes these cookies the best is the combination of flavors. You have your buttery, vanilla-y cookie, white chocolate chips, and marshmallow like macadamias.
Have you ever tried a raw macadamia nut? It melts in your mouth like a cloud of marshmallows.
Although the macadamias in this recipe are toasted, they still have that marshmallow effect when enjoyed in this delicious cookie. When I bake these cookies I like to use good vanilla extract, and when I splurge, vanilla paste.
Up until I started working Rodelle products, I hadn’t tried vanilla paste. Vanilla paste to me is the top-shelf version of vanilla. It’s concentrated and has a smooth, rich finish – almost like a fine bourbon or aged wine (but without the acidity).
Another thing that the Rodell vanilla paste is amazing in (not related to cookies) is whipped cream! I can tell a huge difference in using the paste vs. vanilla extra in fresh made whipped cream. It gives it a sweeter, smoother flavor as opposed to the vanilla extract.
I discovered it by accident one day when I reached for the paste instead of the extract and I haven’t gone back since!
