This is my next update while Nadia is recovering.  This time we decided for me to do something sweet.  These biscuits looked great so here is our version.

They actually turned out really well.  I took some to my French classes and they were well received too 🙂


Makes 32 biscuits


1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup coarsely chopped macadamia nuts
1 cup coarsely chopped white chocolate


Preheat oven to 175C / 350 F
a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and almond extracts.
Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; gradually stir into the creamed mixture.
Mix in the macadamia nuts and white chocolate.
I used a small ice cream scoop to form each biscuit and placed it onto an ungreased tray
Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.

Enjoy! (we did)
