Ultra-Special Chocolate and Macadamia Cookies

About this recipe: These cookies are special because, they not only have two types of chocolate chips in them, they also have the additional crunch from the macadamia nuts. If you think that 48 cookies is too much, you can freeze the portioned out uncooked cookie dough on the baking trays until frozen. Once frozen, store in a container in the freezer. When you want fresh cookies, cook directly from frozen, simply add 2-3 minutes to the cooking time.
