Expert Tips

Macadamia nuts are expensive, so they're optional. You can also use pecans or walnuts, or omit the nuts altogether.

The lemon extract is optional but adds a punch of lemon flavor.

For a more decorative bar, melt an additional 1/2 cup white vanilla baking chips and drizzle over the cooled bars.
