Chocolate-Dipped Macadamia Cookies

  • yield: Makes 17
Photography: Con Poulos

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated lemon zest plus 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts, toasted and finely ground
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 5 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees with racks in upper and lower thirds. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar on medium-high until light and fluffy, 2 minutes. Add egg yolk, lemon zest and juice, and salt and beat until combined; beat in nuts. With mixer on low, add flour and beat just until combined, 2 minutes. Form dough into a 4 1/2-inch-long log, wrap in plastic, and freeze until firm, 30 minutes. Cut into 1/4-inch slices, transfer to two parchment-lined baking sheets, and freeze 5 minutes. Bake until golden at edges, 14 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Let cookies cool completely on wire racks.

  2. Step 2

    Microwave chocolate in 30-second increments, stirring after each, until melted. Dip half of each cookie into chocolate; transfer to parchment-lined baking sheets. Chill until set, 10 minutes.

    Just made these and they are difficult to form into logs and then all the freezing stuff...is there an easier way to make this cookie? Recipe sounds delicious. I may try rolling into a ball and then flattening them. Anyone else tried these?

    The SAVE option is now over on the left hand side....down some. I tried it and had trouble but think they are doing some kind of work on the website as some things look different. Maybe if we wait until later it will work.

    why the option to save the recipe doesn't appear anymore?

    The macadamia Nut is native to Australia.
    The recipe seems lovely.
