Macadamia Valentine Kisses

With just 4 ingredients, these kisses are the perfect treat to impress a loved one at short notice. They make a beautiful Valentine’s Day gift – simply bake and present in pretty packaging – guaranteed to please!


80g unsalted butter, at room temperature

½ cup (75g) icing sugar

½ cup macadamias, plus 2 tablespoons finely chopped extra

½ cup plain flour

Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a large baking sheet with baking paper. Make a buttercream mixture by combining butter and icing sugar in a bowl and beating with an electric mixer until pale. Remove 2 tablespoons of mixture from the bowl and reserve for the filling.
Combine ½ cup of macadamias and the flour in the bowl of a food processor and process until you have achieved a fine flour. Do not over-process or the mixture will stick together. Stir thoroughly into the buttercream mixture.
Place the mixture in a piping bag with a star shaped nozzle and pipe small 1cm round kisses onto the prepared tray. Bake for 7-9 minutes until still pale but just turning golden on the bottom. Allow to cool on the tray for 5 minutes before carefully removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
Meanwhile, stir the extra finely chopped macadamias into the reserved buttercream mixture. Place in a clean piping bag with a plain nozzle and pipe a small amount onto the base of half the biscuits, sandwiching together with another biscuit as you go along. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge.
