With the bounty I have returned from our holiday I set to work to make some items for our pantry - we had taken much of our stock with us, and came back with none!
These I got at Lennox Head Markets:
Macadamia Oil Infused with Lemon Myrtle $8.50
and Lemon Myrtle Spice $4.00
I've used only the spice in this recipe, but I have bought home with me two full bushy branches of leaves home from a lemon myrtle tree - as all this spice is - dried and milled leaves.
So onto the recipe:
Northern Rivers Delights
These are quite buttery like shortbread, but much lighter. The lemon myrtle gives it a citrussy yet more aromatic taste and smell. It's intoxicating!
200 grams margarine
100 grams white sugar
225 grams macadamias - whole or chopped (I would suggest chopping at least half of them)
225 grams self raising flour
1 tsp lemon myrtle spice (or try 2 tsp lemon zest if you can't get any)
Preheat oven to 200 degrees c.
Cream margarine and sugar
Lastly add flour, mixture should look crumbly but sticky and easy to mould.
