  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  • Combine the dry ingredients - flour, salt and baking soda - set aside.
  • Cream together butter, sugars, egg and vanilla.
  • Add the dry ingredients and combine well. Stopping to scrape the edges of the bowl to make sure all of the flour is combined.

If macadamia nuts are not in your budget substitute with Brazilian nuts or hazelnuts. Especially the Brazil nuts have a similar texture and are super rich!
