I've been using this same recipe for years and my nieces and nephew seems to like this cookies a lot. We like our cookies to be crunchy but some of them like their cookies chewy. If you like it crunchy just bake it a bit longer and if you like it chewy just bakes it for 12-15 min.
1 cup (2 stick) of room temperature butter
1 1/2 cup of sugar
2 tsp of vanilla
3 cups of flour
1 tsp of baking soda
1/2 tsp of salt
2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup of chopped macadamia nuts (or any other nuts)
1) Preheat oven to 325 F
2) Cream butter and sugar until well combined and creamy. Add in eggs one at a time.
3) Stir in vanilla. Sift flour, baking soda and salt into a bowl.
4) Add in the flour into the butter mixture and then nuts and chocolate chips.
5) Drop a spoonful of dough into a greased baking pan and bake the cookies for 15-18 min or until the edges are lightly browned.
