Beat in egg and vanilla then reduce the speed to slow and add a little flour.  Blend the rest of the flour in with a wooden spoon.  Then stir in the white chocolate chips with the macadamias.

Drop rounded tablespoons onto the trays 2 inch apart.  Baking should take between 10 and 12 minutes and try to rotate the tray levels at half time. Move one up and one down.
