       Title: LARRY'S TROPICAL TREATS
  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 1 servings
  
     1/2 c  Butter
     1/2 c  Brown sugar
     1/2 c  White sugar
       1    Egg
     1/2 ts Vanilla
       1 c  + 2 T all-purpose flour
     1/2 ts Salt
     1/2 ts Baking soda
       4 oz Candied papaya, chopped
       4 oz Candied mango, chopped
       4 oz Candied pineapple, chopped
       4 oz Dried apricot, chopped
       8 oz Chopped Macadamia nuts
       8 oz White chocolate chunks
  
    A taste of the tropics in every bite!
   
    Preheat oven to 375ø.
   
    In a large bowl, cream butter. Gradually add brown and white sugars and
   beat until creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla.
   
    Sift and stir in flour, salt and baking soda. Fold in candied fruits, nuts
   and white chocolate.
   
    Drop batter by teaspoonfuls, well apart, on a greased cookie sheet. Bake
   at 375ø for about 8-10 minutes. Remove to wire racks and let cool.
   
   Note: If you can't purchase all of the candied fruits, use what you have on
   hand-it will still be scrumptious.
