Hit my link for the recipe of Haole Brownies and you'll see, very little flour, lots of brown sugar...
Akahi Recipes
These are so chewy, dense and caramel-y... OMG! really good!
I add the Toffee bits for a bit of crunch, not traditional, but that's my spin on it. There are two private schools in Hawaii that rival and make a very similar recipe and claim it to be their own.

I have been want to make Trine Hahnemann's Spelt and Anise buns recipe was in the October 2016 Viking Magazine). The flour:liquid ratio was WAY off. I had to add quite a bit more flour to get a dough that wasn't like waffle batter. I will rework the recipe using baker's percentages when I have time. Right now, the rolls are in the oven. The dough "felt" right, we'll see how they turn out.

Mom gave the rolls a thumb's up. The texture has just the right amount of "tooth" and they smell fantastic. The loaf of bread turned out nicely too (had enough dough for 12 rolls and a loaf of bread).

I made rhubarb pie on Sunday for my parents. I absolutely do not like rhubarb pie. My deceased brother loved rhubarb pie. This one was for him. The Elders loved it, it turned out lovely, but I hate rhubarb desserts. Give me rhubarb in savory dishes any day. It is a vegetable. I like it as a vegetable.

Thumbs up Macadamia Nut Shortbread Cookies dipped in Dark Chocolate

Back home, we would get Big Island Candies
Macadamia Nut Shortbread Cookies that were
dipped in dark chocolate.

The first year we lived on the mainland,
I ordered a box for my Mother's birthday.
The box of only 10 small cookies
cost just about as much as S&H did.
That stopped.

So I found a recipe online that seemed pretty close.
I made a few changes to the recipe, of course,
finding that using dipping chocolate as apposed
to melted chocolate chips makes a big difference.
Also, I make mine twice the size of the cookies
from the Big Island, and no shipping and handling charge too!

I made a quadruple batch so that I can take a big tin of cookies
to my Mom when we go out to California to visit in a few weeks.
