Macadamia Shortbread

Shortbread is one of my family's favorite baked goods and I never fail to please them everytime I make it no matter what kind it is !

The recipe ( I was inspired and adapted from here. )    

90g Caster sugar plus extra for sprinkle
80g Corn starch
260g  All purpose flour
1/4 tsp  Salt
100g  Macadamia nuts
250g  Cold Unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1tsp  Vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 180 C. Line 9" square cake tin with baking paper. Put all ingredients in food processor and run until everything combined and form the dough. 

Press the dough into the prepared pan, smooth the surface. Prick with fork and sprinkle with superfine sugar. Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes. Remove from the oven and use a sharp knife score into pieces and prick with fork again. Let it cool for 10 minutes before cutting into pieces.
