White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

I got this recipe out of Bon Appetit years ago....they are wonderfully chewy on the inside with a slight crisp on the outside...not overly sweet yet, perfect for that hounding sweet tooth. 

3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter - softened
1 cup (packed) light brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups white chocolate chips
1 1/2 cup coarsely chopped roasted salted macadamia nuts

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.
Beat the butter until fluffy, add the both the white and brown sugar.  Mix until well blended.   Add the vanilla and eggs, one at a time.  Mix until smooth.
Mix in the  dry ingredients and beat just until blended.
Carefully mix in the nuts and chips. and nuts.
For large cookies, drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing 21/2 inches apart. For small cookies, drop dough by level tablespoonfuls onto sheets, spacing 11/2 inches apart.
Bake cookies until just golden, about 18 minutes for large cookies and about 15 minutes for small cookies. Cool on sheets.
