White chocolate macadamia nut cookies are really great and all, but they aren't the only thing macadamia nuts are good for. It's time to branch out when it comes to this nut, and experiment with them in all of your other favorite sweet recipes -- like in a white chocolate macadamia nut brownie lamington. (If you don't know what that is, you are seriously missing out!)

Macadamia nut recipes are just one more way to step up your dessert game. If you're worried that your carrot cake recipe falls flat, try it with macadamia nuts. If your blondies are just "eh," throw in a handful of these nuts. They make everything better, just like magic.
