Leftover macadamia nut panko mix=cookies, at least in my book. Always a fan of sweet/salty combinations (esp in cookies!), I was fascinated by the idea of adding this crunchy, salty mix into a simple sugar cookie. The result was as delightful as sipping a lava flow on the beach.
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup and 2tbsp light brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup crushed macadamia nuts and panko (extras from your macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi, of course)
Bake at 375° for about 10 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
