100 g plant based Nuttelex

150 g castor sugar

the zest of one large lemon

1 tsp vanilla bean or extract

1 egg or egg replacer

1/3 cup cream or coconut cream

100 g small, chopped macadamias

400 g plain flour (sifted)

10 g baking powder


1Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC.

2In a bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the butter, sugar, lemon zest, and vanilla until light and fluffy.

3Add the egg and cream and give this a good mix.

4Add the sifted flour, baking powder and macadamias. Knead to form a strong dough.

5Once the dough is firm, divide it into two rectangle bricks. Wrap each brick in cling film and refrigerate for a couple of hours. You can put them into the freezer for a faster chilling time.

6Once the dough is chilled, roll each section out between baking paper until they are 6-7 mm thick.

7Cut the dough with your preferred cookie cutters.

8Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, or until light golden in colour.

9When cooled, dust the biscuits with icing sugar.
