Whether you're planning a backyard barbecue or beach-side picnic, celebrate Australia Day with a drool-worthy recipe using macadamias, Australia's native nut.


  • 1 cup macadamia butter*

  • 60g unsalted butter

  • 1/3 cup honey

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, lightly packed

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour, sifted

  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda, sifted

  • 1 cup unsalted roasted macadamias, finely chopped

  • 35 honey roasted macadamias for topping


  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line 2-3 baking trays with baking paper. Place macadamia butter, unsalted butter, honey and brown sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat for about 2 minutes until pale and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Beat in the flour and soda, then add the chopped macadamias and stir through.

    Place a heaped teaspoonful on the baking trays, allowing room to spread, and flatten slightly. Place a honey roasted macadamia in the centre of each biscuit and bake for 9-10 minutes, or until cooked and lightly golden. Turn out onto a wire rack and allow to cool completely before eating.
