  • Damar12's Macadamia Nut Cookies

    I have a friend who is looking for a recipe for these cookies. Does anyone have a tried and true recipe they want to share. I found these though. What do you think?


    Chocolate Dipped Macadamia Nut Shortbread Cookies

    1 cup butter, softened
    3/4 cup powdered sugar
    2 cups flour, sifted
    1 1/2 tsp. shortening
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 cup macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
    1/4 cup macadamia nuts, finely chopped
    1 cup chocolate chips

    In large bowl, cream butter, sugar and vanilla together. Slowly stir in flour until well blended. Add coarsely chopped macadamia nuts. On waxed paper shape cookie dough into a roll approximately two inches in diameter. Roll waxed paper around dough then wrap the roll in aluminum foil. Place in refrigerator, chilling at least 2 hours or more.

    Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Remove chilled cookie dough and cut roll into slices between 1/4 and 1/2 inch thick. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for approximately 20 minutes or until they turn golden brown around the edges.

    While cookies cool on a wire rack, pour 1/4 cup finely chopped macadamia nuts into small bowl. Melt chocolate chips in a bowl in microwave. Add shortening to warm, melted chocolate chips, blending well. Dip one end of each cookie into chocolate, then into the finely chopped macadamia nuts and place on wax paper. Refrigerate cookies until chocolate hardens. Store in cool place.


    Macadamia Shortbread Cookies

    2 cups butter, softened
    1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    3 cups plus 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1 cup cake flour
    1 3/4 cups finely chopped macadamia nuts
    1/4 cup raw sugar

    This recipe makes deceptively light, notoriously rich shortbread cookies.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil two baking sheets.

    In a large bowl, cream butter, sugar, vanilla and salt together until light and fluffy. Add flour and cake flour and beat until smooth.

    In a shallow dish, stir together macadamia nuts and raw sugar. Form dough into 1-inch balls and roll in macadamia nut mixture. Place 2-inches apart on prepared baking sheets, and flatten slightly. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on rack.
