This is a nuttier version of a basic brittle recipe. I added macadamia nuts - my favorites - and the brittle turned out tastier than ever. I love making this crisp snack because the results are impressive...and the job goes fast using the microwave.

Fixing desserts is my favorite kind of cooking. I usually make these cookies for Christmas—their pale-white adds a special touch to all the reds and greens.
We—my husband, our daughter (6) and I—live on a real dirt road! I'm a full-time wife and mother. Our second child's due to join us in mid-January.
While these loaves may be small, they have a big rich flavor. The macadamia nuts make them a special treat with tropical flair. Plus, they're so pretty with the toasted coconut topping. —Kim Gilliland, Simi Valley, California
Even though he's not a chocolate fan, my husband likes these brownies. I fix them for family, company and potlucks. Loaded with macadamia nuts, these chunky, bite-size treats never fail to catch attention on a buffet table. If you prefer, replace the macadamia nuts with pecans. —Bernice Muilenburg, Molalla, Oregon
Each Christmas, I fill jars with these special nuts, tie the top with a piece of colored ribbon and give them away as gifts. Everyone is always pleasantly surprised by their zesty taste.—Becky Cleveland, Waterville, Nova Scotia
