At Scott's pre Christmas work do last year the guys were talking about going to the Macadamia Farm for lunch. I did mention to them that I may be coerced into making some macadamia choc chip cookies if they bought me home a small bag. The small bag turned out to be half a kilo 😵... what am I going to do with half a kilo of nuts I love but cannot eat?
I will be posting macadamia everything until they are used I think!
We have just returned from a week in Hawaii for a friends wedding. I love Hawaii and found this great store every where called The Honolulu Cookie Company they have the cutest, yummiest pineapple shaped cookies. Most have macadamia nuts in them however I did manage to bring home a big old box of non macadamia cookies 😍
150 gm butter, room temperature
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup caster sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
250 gm white chocolate chips or chunks
200 gm macadamia nuts chopped
Cream together butter and both sugars.
Beat until pale approx 8 minutes.
Beat in vanilla and egg until combined or approx 5 minutes.
Stir through sifted flour and baking powder until combined.
Stir through the chocolate chips and nuts.
Scoop onto cookie sheet with your cookie scoop or a tablespoon measure. At this stage you can freeze for later.
Bake in 180C pre heated oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until brown around the edges.
These keep for up to a week in an airtight container.
