Blend macadamia nuts into coarse powder, or chop roughly; set aside. Sift plain flour, salt, baking powder and soda; set aside. Preheat oven to 180°C.

  2. Hi Seadragon,

    I made these yesterday and used only half the sugar because my hubby doesn’t like cookies too sweet.

    I rolled them into 3cm balls and didn’t flatten them prior to cooking and they did not flatten out in the cooking process like yours. Is that normal??

    Apart from that, they were very chocolatey and yummy!!! 🙂

    • Well, you’ve just answered your question, you changed the recipe by reducing the sugar. So it is not the same recipe anymore, and will not produce the same result. HTH.
