White Chocolate & Macadamia Nut Cookies

1 c. butter
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/4 c. flour
2 tsp. soda
3/4 c. chopped macadamia nuts
1 c. white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream together butter and sugars, then add 1 egg at a time, then vanilla, mixing well and scraping the sides of the bowl. Add flour, salt and soda and mix just till combined. Add nuts and chocolate, mixing gently until incorporated.

Using a medium ice cream scoop (or two spoons) drop dough onto parchment-lined baking sheets, a couple of inches apart. These cookies will spread while cooking. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from oven, allow cookies to cool a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
