White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

I made these yummy White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies to have as a sweet treat the night my Mom and brother arrived in Okinawa. They are a delicious variation on the basic chocolate chip cookie. I love Macadamia Nuts and they are so perfect in this cookie. This recipe makes 60 cookies so be prepared to share or freeze some! 
White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 12 ounce package white chocolate chips
3 1/2 ounces macadamia nuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large mixing bowl beat shortening and butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, granulated sugar, and baking soda. Beat until mixture is combined, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much as the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour. Stir in chocolate chips and macadamia nuts. 
Drop by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. 
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
