white chocolate macadamia nut cookies

Today is the last day for one of my favorite people at the computer store. When I asked for his favorite cookie, he said, "White chocolate macadamia nut." A man of great taste. I went searching for a recipe and found this one here to be the most helpful. And now I share it with you.

1 cup butter (unsalted, room temperature)
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
Beat butter and sugars until smooth and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl combine
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Add gradually to butter mixture. Then add

1 12 ounce bag of white chocolate chips
1 cup macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped

Drop in 1 ounce scoops on a lined cookie sheet (parchment or Silpat) and bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes. Makes about four dozen.
