shortbread cookies // coconut + macadamias

Coconut Macadamia Nut Cookies

These cookies, THESE cookies are so freakin' amazing. Before posting I ended up testing this recipe about 5 times and they were spot on 4 out of 5 times.....the first time around, I attempted a gluten free version and that was a total fail, it didn't even make it to the freezer phase of the recipe. Then I moved onto the good ol' all purpose flour and there was not turning back- they were perfect.

The ingredients are pretty simple. You can swap out the Beet Sugar for pretty much any granular sugar you have on hand, although Beet Sugar has become my new go to sugar for about a year now.

I am absolutely in love with the sweetness of the coconut oil and macadamias- these cookies are so addicting and they make a ton. I highly recommend packing up a box and sharing half with a neighbor, friend or your co-workers.

I have used both flax eggs and aquafaba- both work equally well but prefer the flax eggs in this specific cookie recipe.

Roll, freeze + slice.
 I am pretty sure these cookies will be making the Holiday Cookie Box Cut come December.

Don't be tempted to overcook, you want them to be just a little golden around the edges.

I did accidentally leave one of my test batches a little too long in the oven- they were still good, just a little crunchy.
