White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

This is a classic chocolate chip cookie recipe, but with white chocolate and macadamia nuts.  These white chocolate discs are a nice change because they are larger than regular chocolate chips and are pretty too; you can find them at gourmet food stores. 

3/4 cup dark brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar 

1 cup butter, softened
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup white chocolate discs or chips 

1 cup macadamia nuts, halved

Heat oven to 375.  Combine brown sugar, sugar, butter and eggs and beat until light and fluffy. Add vanilla extract and blend well.

Incorporate flour, baking soda and salt, then fold in white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts. Drop dough by large tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes (or longer for crisp cookies). Cool  before removing from cookie sheets.  Enjoy!
