This is posted for the World Tour 2005 RecipeZaar event. I haven't tried them yet, but love macadamia nut cookies - so I can't wait to try them. The source of the recipe is a website called kavenga.com.au which has quite a few Australian recipes.
- Beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. Coarsely grind the nuts (I usually do this by placing in a zip bag and pounding them with a meat tenderizer). Add to the sugar mixture and mix.
- Stir in flour and blend. Spoon heaping tablespoons of the mixture onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with a fork and sprinkle each with some coconut.
- Bake at 350 F for fifteen minutes, or until lightly brown around the edges. Let rest on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a rack to cool.
