Chocolate-Macadamia Nut Clusters

Post  justmecookin on Tue Jan 06, 2009 3:35 pm

Chocolate-Macadamia Nut Clusters

8 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
1/4 cup (1/8 lb.) butter
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups unsalted roasted macadamia nuts
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup sweetened flaked dried coconut (4 oz.)

In a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water (bottom of bowl should not touch water), stir chopped chocolate and butter often until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from over water and let cool to room temperature, about 15 minutes.

In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on high speed, beat sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. Add chocolate mixture and beat until well blended. Stir in flour and baking powder, then beat just until moistened. Stir in macadamia nuts, chocolate chips, and coconut.

Drop dough in 1-tablespoon portions, about 2 inches apart, onto buttered or cooking parchment-lined 12- by 15-inch baking sheets.

Bake cookies in a 350 oven just until firm on the edges but still soft when pressed in the middle, 8 to 10 minutes (see notes); if baking more than one pan at a time, switch pan positions halfway through baking. Let cookies cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then use a wide spatula to transfer to racks to cool completely. Makes about 42 cookies

Notes: These rich drop cookies taste like chocolate-covered macadamia nut candies. Take care not to overbake the cookies; their centers should remain soft and chewy.

1-1/2 cups sugar
1-1/4 cups butter, softened
1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 teaspoon shortening

In a mixing bowl, combine flour, oats, sugar and butter until crumbly. Set aside 1-1/2 cups for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes or until edges begin to brown.

In a bowl, combine pie filling and extract; carefully spread over crust. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Bake 20-25 minutes longer or until edges and topping are lightly browned. In a microwave or heavy saucepan, melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Drizzle over warm bars. Cool completely on a wire rack. Makes 3 dozen.
