Macadamia White Chip Cookies

My mother l-o-v-e-s white chocolate and macadamia. It has to be one of her very favorite pairings.

Since she lives so far away from me, I miss her a lot. We talk multiple times a week, sometimes multiple times a day.
Every now and again I like to ship her something delicious to make her day.

This was one of these moments.

I had bought Ghiradelli white chips for another recipe and saw this on the back of the bag. It went into the mountain-o-recipes and was forgotten until today.

Whipped them up (man, such a better deal on macadamia nuts at Target than at my local grocery!), packed them carefully, and entrusted my yummies to the USPS.
(I also sent her some salty kisses, just because they are fun)

Package made it, happy mother has been texting me every single time she grabs a cookie...and my heart is full!

1 Cup butter (softened)
1 ½ Cup sugar
1 Cup brown sugar
2 Eggs (room temperature)
1 ½ Tsp vanilla extract
3 Cups flour
½ Tsp baking soda
1 Tsp salt
2 Cups (11 oz) white chocolate chips
1 ½ Cups macadamia nuts (chopped)
