Yes, always been thought of as nutty, but now to remove all doubt, these gorgeous little Parmesan, Macadamia shortbread’s, with fresh rosemary thrown in for good measure. SO EASY, it barely needs a recipe, just a Thermomix and a couple of minutes…yes really dah-links!
Like I said, a little nutty, sweet from the nuts, but pungent from the cheese, and like a good woman, the more aged the better on that front! Go ahead, go nuts yourself, but please enjoy.
