These macadamia nut toffee cookies have a texture similar to a shortbread cookie and it’s hard to stop at just one.

Macadamia Nut Cookies with Ice Cream

These cookies are not particularly sweet, and the texture is similar to a shortbread cookie which tastes really good alongside ice cream.

This cookie dough is made with toffee chips in it and the outside of the dough is rolled in coarsely chopped macadamia nuts.

Since the macadamia nuts are on the outside of these cookies, the nuts get slightly toasted when the cookies are baked.

And the slightly toasted macadamia nuts add a wonderful flavor to the cookie.

While the cookies are baking, you can definitely smell the nuts as they toast.

I especially like the toffee bits and very subtle coffee flavor in these cookies.

Let’s check out the ingredients.
