Macadamia Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/8 cups sifted all-purpose flour
41/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
1 1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease 2 large cookie sheets with vegetable shortening.
Cream the butter and sugars together in a large bowl. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract until well blended. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt; gradually blend into the batter. Stir in the chopped macadamia nuts and chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto the cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown. Remove from the oven, and transfer to cooling rack.
