Magnum, Maui & Macadamia. Three things that spring to my mind when I think about Hawaii.
I loved Magnum as a kid, spent a great week on Maui and never have any clue what to do with macadamia nuts.
So today I put myself in Hawaiian mood with the great Izzy Kamakawawi’ole and baked Hawaiian chocolate covered macadamia nut cookies. The recipe is from a blog aptly called true Aloha.
Mix 250g soft butter with 200g confectioners sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence.
I have to admit that the dough was too crumbly at first and I added a tiny splash of cream to be able to turn it into a proper dough.
Before the cookies can go in the oven you need to wrap the dough in clingfilm, roll it into a roll of about 4 cm in diameter and put it in the fridge for 1-2 hours.
