How to impress your neighbours with Macadamia Coconut Icebox Cookies
Softened butter 1 cups
Sugar (granulated) 1 cups
Vanilla extract 1 tablespoon
Flour (all-purpose) 2 cups
Baking soda 1 teaspoon
Quick cooking oats (rolled) 2 cups
Macadamia nuts (chopped) 2 cups
Coconut (flakes) 1 cup
Method of Preparation
Take a large bowl and add butter and sugar and cream together until the mixture becomes fluffy. Add vanilla and stir in. Add flour, baking soda and salt to another bowl and sift together. Add this sifted flour mixture to the butter mixture and stir well.
Then add oatmeal, macadamia nuts and coconut and stir well.
Make three equal portions of the dough made and roll each portion into a log of about 2-1/2 inches in diameter. Cover each log with plastic wrap and keep in refrigerator for 2 hours for initial chilling. You can make use of the dough thus prepared even up to 2 months provided you wrap them and deep freeze.
Preheat oven to 325 F. Keep ready baking sheets lined either with parchment paper or non-stick baking mats.
Take out the chilled dough and allow it to stand at room temperature for 10 minutes for thawing. Make inch round slices out of the rolled dough and lay them over prepared baking sheets 1 inch apart. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until golden brown.
Allow to cool for one 1 minute on baking sheet itself and then remove to wire racks for complete cooling.
