Macadamia Nut Toffee Coffee Cookies

I just have to tell you that these cookies are SO good.

And if they weren’t good enough on their own, they are over the top delicious as an ice cream sandwich with coffee ice cream.

These cookies are not particularly sweet, and the texture is a bit like a shortbread cookie which makes them so perfect to use as an ice cream sandwich.

The macadamia nuts are on the outside of this cookie which works so well because they get a bit toasted when the cookie is baked. 

And the toffee bits and coffee flavor are a perfect compliment to the macadamia nuts. 

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Here’s how to make it.

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Cream butter with sugar, coffee powder, salt and vanilla.

Sift the flour.

Add the flour to the butter mixture.

Stir the flour into the mixture.

Add the toffee bits.

Blend the toffee bits into the dough.

Set aside the cookie batter.

Chop the macadamia nuts and put them into a bowl.

Drop the cookie batter by the teaspoonful into the bowl of chopped macadamia nuts, and roll to coat the dough shaping it into a ball.

Place the balls of cookie dough on a cookie sheet.

Flatten each ball of dough just a bit with the back of a spoon and add a sprinkle of sugar to the top of the flatten cookie dough.

In a preheated oven, bake the cookies slowly for about 20 to 25 minutes, just until the edges are very lightly browned.

Let them cool and serve cookies separately or with coffee ice cream in between two of the cookies.

Enjoy!

    Loved this recipe, and will add it to my “Best macadamia Nut Recipes” blog over at Squidoo! I Used fresh Hawaii macadamia nuts for this recipe. I get mine from http://www.maunakeagold.com. In my opinion, Hawaii produces the best Mac Nuts!
