Macadamia Nut Cookies

1 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 (3.5 ounce) jars macadamia nuts, chopped ( Very expensive but oh so good!) 
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup vanilla baking chips ( I never add these... just not something I want to spend the money on)
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars.
Add eggs and vanilla; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
Combine flour, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture and beat for 2 minutes.
Stir in nuts and chips.
Cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight.
Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool on pans for 1 minute before removing to wire racks; cool completely.
