Macadamia slice recipe
- 275g plain flour
- 130g unsalted butter
- 1 tbsp caster sugar
- 50 ml cold water
- 200g unsalted butter
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 200g macadamia nuts
- 100g crystalized ginger
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp glucose syrup
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 3 tbsp cream
Place the butter and flour into a food processor and process until they resemble fine breadcrumbs. With the motor running, drizzle in the cold water until it all comes together and forms a ball and you have no more water left.
Cover with cling film and rest in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 180°C and line a slice tray with baking paper.
Roll and press the dough into the slice tray. Prick all over with a fork and bake for 25 mins or until golden.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter and place the macadamis in it to simmer for 3 mins. Add the brown sugar, ginger, glucose syrup, maple syrup and salt.
Cook for 10 minutes, continually stirring.
Pour cream and cook further for 3 mins.
Pour over the base and refrigerate until fully cooled.
Slice with a sharp knife.

- Do not move away from the stove when cooking this. The moment you leave that caramel it will catch and burn.
- If you want to leave the ginger out, it doesn't make much difference to the recipe.
