Coconut Lime White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies ~from Our Best Bites

 This recipe comes from Our Best Bites food blog and it is pretty spectacular. These cookies are one of the best things I have ever tasted & I wouldn't change a thing about them... and I don't say that very often! ENJOY!! 
2 cups flour, spooned lightly into measuring cups and leveled with knife
1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon table salt
12 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and cooled until luke warm
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg + 1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup chopped white chocolate or white chocolate chips
1 cup coconut (toasted or untoasted)
1 cup toasted macadamia nuts; roughly chopped
1 1/2-2 tablespoons grated lime zest (1-2 limes)
Heat oven to 325 degrees.  Mix flour, salt, and baking soda together in medium bowl; set aside.
 With an electric mixer, mix butter and sugars until thoroughly blended. Mix in egg, yolk, and vanilla. Add dry ingredients & mix until combined.
Add white chocolate chips, coconut, macadamia nuts, and lime zest.  Mix to distribute.
Scoop cookie dough into balls and place on parchment lined baking sheets.  Bake until cookies are set around outer edges, yet centers are still soft and puffy, and appear slightly under-baked, about 9-10 minutes. Cool cookies on cookie sheets for a few minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.
