Cream together your butter and sugar until it’s light and fluffy. Add in the eggs and vanilla, mixing thoroughly. Beat in the flour, baking soda and salt.
When that is done, fold in the chocolate chips and macadamia nuts by hand, and prepare to put them on some parchment paper lined cookie sheets.
Drop by rounded teaspoonful onto the baking sheets OR if you want to make huge cookies, use an ice cream scoop sized cookie scoop and drop them on the sheet, 6 to a sheet, well spaced apart.
Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown and slightly underdone for the small cookies. Bake for 15-16 minutes for the large, checking to make sure that the edges are baked completely and the middle is almost baked through but not quite. Cool on the sheets completely.
