Notes & tips

From your Personal Chef Katarina,

Follow any recipe for Pecan Pie and substitute Macadamia nuts for Pecans. Easy Peasy. 

To create the tart, use ceramic tartlets.  A recipe for a pie is equivalent to eight (8) tartlets.  

make sure you butter the ceramic dishes generously so they pop right out. 

follow a pie dough recipe and bake accordingly.

Local Macadamia nuts are available at Mana food, Whole Foods and Maui Hub.
