Cooktop Cove: Need a new twist on classic cookies? Try macadamia chocolate chip shortbread
If you’ve ever been to Hawaii, the flavor of macadamia nuts will transport you back to those pristine beaches in an instant. With a slightly waxy texture and a creamy flavor reminiscent of coconut, macadamia nuts are an exotic treat for most of us. Adding them to a buttery shortbread cookie along with chocolate chips is pure genius.
For the perfect texture, crush or grind the macadamia nuts finely, but not so finely that they turn into a paste. Pulsing them in a food processor is your best bet here, but if you don’t have one, crush them in a sturdy plastic bag using a meat tenderizer or rolling pin.
