Yeah… I don’t have the instructions to make these delicious almond-butter and macadamia nut cookies because Rob’s method of cooking is essentially finding a recipe, studying it carefully and then completely ignoring it and doing whatever he wants.  So I’m going to try and wing it based on what I remember.

Alright… so we’ve got some macadamia nuts… some salt and some baking powder, vanilla extract, butter, cane sugar, whole wheat pastry flour, some different cane sugar, and some almond butter.  I’m pretty sure that’s everything that’s up there.

nuts!Okay… chop the nuts.

mortar pestleSince cane sugar is so huge, we had to take it to a mortar pestle to get it down to a usable size.

sifting looks coolMix the wet ingredients (es) and then sift the flour on top.

doughAfter you mix it together, it’ll look like this.  Mixing takes a while.

cookiesheetForm the dough into little balls and put ’em on a cookie sheet.

cross-hatchUse a fork and do this thing with them… I’m pretty sure Rob called it cross-hatching.

Cookies!Bake for a pre-determined amount of time and then you’ll have cookies!  Yay for cookies!
