    For more fun sandwich them together with lemon marmalade...


    • 6 oz salted dry-roasted macadamia nuts (1 1/2 cups)
    • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
    • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 oz milk chocolate, chopped


    1. Preheat oven to 375°F with rack in middle.
    2. Toast nuts in a 4-sided sheet pan in oven until golden, 8 to 10 minutes, then cool and coarsely chop. Leave oven on.
    3. Stir together butter, sugars, vanilla, and salt in a bowl with a rubber spatula until combined well. Stir in flour, nuts, and chocolate until a soft dough forms.
    4. With floured fingers, pat dough into a 10-inch square (about 1/2 inch thick) on a baking sheet. Score into desired size with tip of a knife. Bake until golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
    5. I used a pastry cutter.
