Ingedients macaroons:

125gm superdried, superfine macadamia lightly roasted

Method:

Place ground macadamia nuts and icing sugar into a food processor and process until fine.

Beat egg whites, cream of tartar and sugar to firm peaks (do not beat meringue to dry).

Carefully fold nut mixture into meringue, stir until mixture turns glossy and starts losing volume, dropping of your wooden spoon.
