Tamalehawk is in the business of throwing culinary gauntlets, casting them carelessly to the ground before soaring aloof to a nearby roof to snicker and squawk at any ensuing hullaballoos. In this case, he's going to go ahead and proclaim the white-chocolate macadamia nut cookie the best in class. Sophisticated, crunchy, velvety and toothsome, these beauties always warrant a stop to the cramped Mrs. Field's booth at the mall. It's worth navigating their complicated combo menu to roll up on a pair of these tender gems.
This batch is a remix of the original Toll House recipe. Tamalehawk tilted the sugar scales in favor of light brown to make a chewier, more flexible cookie. Apparently you are supposed to get fifty cookies from this recipe, but Tamalehawk only wound up with twenty four. Maybe it was the massive ice cream scoop he was portioning them with. Also, always do yourself a favor and heat your cookie up in the microwave for 15 seconds or so to get the full experience.
