  • 1 cup packed light or dark brown sugar (213 grams)
  • ½ cup granulated sugar (100 grams)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ¼ cup all-purpose flour (270 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • Coarse salt , for sprinkling (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line sheet pans with parchment paper.
  • Add macadamia nuts to 1 sheet pan and spread into an even layer. Toast in oven for about 5 minutes, then let cool completely.
