Recipe for Macadamia and Honey Biscuits – enjoy with a cup of tea
1 cup castor sugar
2 large eggs
3 tablespoons runny honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
120g macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
Preheat your oven to 170°C and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
Place the butter and castor sugar in a bowl and cream together until fluffy and pale.
Add the eggs, honey and vanilla extract and mix until everything is combined.
Combine the flour, cinnamon, baking powder and macadamia nuts in a bowl, then add to the butter mixture and mix in well.
Wet your hands slightly before rolling the dough into walnut sized balls. Arrange these on the baking tray, allowing space for the biscuits to spread. Use the palm of your hand to flatten the balls slightly.
Bake the biscuits for 10 minutes, then turn the tray in the oven and bake for a further 8 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden.
Transfer the biscuits to a cooling rack and allow to cool before serving.
