The brilliance of shortbread is its simplicity. Mix together some butter, flour, sugar, and you've got a lovely, tasty cookie. I like that kind of thinking, as you can see in recipes like this one. Or how about this one?
This particular recipe for shortbread comes from a fabulous baking book, The Modern Baker. Macadamia nuts seem to be too often relegated to ho-hum cookies with white chocolate. Not my favorite. But, here in these shortbread, those same macadamias get the chance to be the star.
By Jennifer McHenry on January 30, 2012I wouldn’t try to guess how many kinds of chocolate chip cookies I’ve made over the years. It’s hard to grow tired of them, especially with all the different ways you can keep them interesting. Nuts, dried fruits, more nuts, maybe some oats. Or, in the case of this version, macadamia nuts and peanut butter chips.
