I had two bags of macadamia nuts left from my Hawai’ian cookies recipe and today I ventured to get rid of one.
The recipe that helped me do that is from an Australian website called macnuts.com.au and is for chocolate macadamia biscotti.
First mix 250g flour with 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, 175g sugar and half a teaspoon of baking powder.
Roast 150g roughly chopped macadamia nuts in a dry pan.
Lightly beat 3 eggs, add the rind of one orange and then add the macadamia nuts.
Make a mould in the middle of the flour and pour in the egg mix.
Mix together until you get a nice sticky dough. Put on a floured surface and make two logs.
Bake the logs in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes.
Leave to cool for 5-10 minutes, then cut into slices of 5mm and put them back in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
They looked perfect when I took them out of the oven.
And they taste great with their nutty flavour and a hint of orange. The perfect bite with a nice espresso or strong tea!
