  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Beat sugars, butter, shortening, vanilla and egg in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, or mix with spoon. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt (dough will be stiff). Stir in white baking bar chunks and nuts.

Expert Tips

You can use 6 ounces (about 1 cup) white baking chips in place of the white baking bar if you’d prefer.

To make White Chocolate Chunk-Rum-Macadamia Cookies, use 1 1/2 teaspoons rum extract instead of the vanilla extract.
