Recipe: Macadamia-Shortbread Cheesecake Crust

Here is my favorite crust for my cheesecakes:

Macadamia-Shortbread Crust:

1 c Unsalted Macadamia Nuts

1/2 c flour

2 T granulated sugar

2 T brown sugar

1/4 t salt

4 T cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

1 T cold milk

1/4 t pure vanilla extract.


In a food processor, combine the macadamias , with flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and salt. Run food processor on "PULSE" until nuts are finely chopped. Add the butter, and pulse until butter is mixed through. With the food processor still running, add the milk and vanilla, until dough starts to come together.

Roll out the dough between two large sheets of parchment paper to fit your springform pan. Refrigerate until firm, at least one hour, or overnight.
