Chocolate Chip Macadamia Cookies

I decided to post the recipe for Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies for the weekend since I'm going to the Beach, but yesterday Caron at Caron's Beach House/Everything Coastal posted a recipe for a very similar cookie. Her recipe is great, too, so here's a link to her recipe for Island Cookies. Her cookies include coconut and white chocolate chips. Different measurements, so why not try both this weekend? Funny how 'fine minds' think alike! :-). There's always room for one more chocolate chip cookie!

 Chocolate Chip Macadamia Cookies

1/2 cup sweet butter, softened
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon pure Madagascar vanilla
1 1/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
1 1/4 cups semisweet or white chocolate chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Lightly grease 2 large cookie sheets.
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 in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown.
Remove from the oven, and transfer the cookies to cooling racks.
