Almond, Macadamia and Coconut cookies

Found this recipe at a fantastic blog on the internet.  Suggestion was to add 75 grams of shredded coconut and i'm glad I did.


- 125g softened unsalted butter
- 150g packed brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon of white castor sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
- 100g chopped macadamia nuts
- 100g chopped almonds
- 75g shredded coconut
- 225g plain flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Pre-heat oven to 150C and toast the nuts for 10 mminutes.
  2. Beat the butter and sugars until creamy.
  3. Separately sift the flour, baking powder and salt until well combined.
  4. Add the eggs and vanilla to the butter and sugar and beat well.
  5. Add the flour and mix well.  Mixture should be a bit stiff.
  6. Combine the nuts and coconut into the mixture
  7. Increase oven heat to 180C.
  8. Using a ice-cream scoot scoot spoons of the mixture onto a greased baking sheet and press down with a fork.

  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.
