dark chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies

I needed a baked good birthday gift for my brother-in-law. Even though I had never tried these before, I glad that I did!

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup macadamia nuts, chopped

Stir in the chopped macadamia nuts and chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto the cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart.
3.Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown. Remove from the oven, and transfer the cookies to cooling racks.
