Dorothy (Mrs. Crazy for Crust herself) comes up with some amazing things. This…this is just one of the many successful recipes I have created of hers. I love pecan pie and after my honeymoon in Maui filled with macadamia nut everything, I knew I needed this pie.

Macadamia Nut White Chocolate Pie
(Adapted from Crazy for Crust)

Makes about 8 servings

Ingredients:
1 8-9 inch graham cracker crust (I used a store-bought crust)
1 1/2 cups macadamia nuts, chopped
2/3 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
3 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Add chopped macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips to the pie crust. Gently shake the crust pan to evenly spread the nuts and chips across the bottom. Set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk sugar and water. Add salt and butter and mix until well-combined. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs well. Add beaten eggs to the sugar and butter mixture. Whisk mixture well and pour into pie crust.
3. Place pie crust on a cookie sheet. Bake about 10 minutes, the reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees. Bake for another 35-40 minutes, or until the top becomes golden brown. Remove from heat and cool at least 30-45 minutes before cutting and serving.
