  • ¼ cup unsalted macadamia nuts

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

  • 2 teaspoons cognac


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread macadamia nuts on a baking sheet.

  2. Bake nuts in the preheated oven until lightly toasted, 7 to 10 minutes. Let cool.

  3. Place nuts in a blender or food processor; process until finely ground. Add butter and cognac. Process until just combined. Do not overmix, or the butter will heat up and separate.

  4. Form macadamia nut butter into a log or pack into a crock. Store covered in the refrigerator until serving.

Cook's Note:

Substitute macadamia nut liqueur for the cognac if preferred.
