White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Recipe courtesy of Nicole Handy. This recipe was originally a chocolate chip cookie recipe - but we added the white chocolate chips and Macadamia nuts instead of semi sweet chocolate chips.

2/3 cup shortening

2/3 cup margarine or butter

1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar, packed

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla

3 cups flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 cup chopped Macadamia Nuts

12 oz. pkg. white chocolate chips

Heat oven to 375. Mix shortening, butter and sugars well. Add eggs and vanilla and mix. Combine dry ingredients and add. Add nuts and chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or till light brown. Yield: 7 doz.
