    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Grease and line the base and sides of an 18 x 28 cm baking pan,leaving 3cm hanging over on each side.
    2. 2
      Place the flour,semolina,baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt in a bowl and stir well with a wooden spoon to combine.
    3. 3
      Stir in the nuts and the chocolate.
    4. 4
      Combine butter,sugar and vanilla in a food processor and whiz for 1-2 mins,until the mixture is light and creamy.Stop occasionally to scrape down the side with a spatula.Stir butter mixture into flour mixture until well combined.The dough should be quite thick and awkward to mix.
    5. 5
      Press the dough into the pan and prick it all over with a fork.Chill for 15 minutes.
    6. 6
      Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.Bake the shortbread for 30 mins or until firm to the touch.While it's still hot,score in half lengthways and then across at 2cm intervals to make 28 rectangles.
    7. 7
      Cool in the pan for 10 mins,then lift out of the pan and cut into fingers.
    8. 8
      Biscuits keep in an airtight container for up to 5 days -- should they last that long!

      What a wonderful shortbread recipe! I absolutely love dark chocolate and the toasted macadamia nuts just really sealed the deal for us. I will be making these delicious treats again for the holidays. Thank you for the post. Made for Fall PAC, October, 2011.

      I love Shortbread! Add chocolate and macadamia nuts - WOW! Delicious!! One complaint-not recipe related- is my inability to change ingredients amounts from US to metric (Made for the July 2010 Aussie/Kiwi Swap)

      I find myself baking more & more with quality dark chocolate, & for me, this recipe highlights that ingredient nicely! I used slightly more than the recipe calls for, but then I'm a serious chocoholic & the result was a wonderful treat for me & mine! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
