In a large mixing bowl cream together butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla and until combined. Add salt, soda, flour and beat until well incorporated. An electric hand mixer makes this easier. Stir in chocolate chips and macadamia nuts. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
When ready to bake preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Form discs that are ¾ - 1 inch thick and 1 ½-2 inches wide. Place on parchment paper or a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until they start to lose their shiny surface and the edge starts to set. These cookies are better underdone. Cool at least 5 minutes on cookie sheets before removing to cool on wire racks.
