Macadamia Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes: about 18
   3/4 cup vegan margarine
   1 1/2 level cup gluten/ wheat free plain flour
   1/3 cup brown sugar
   1/3 cup cane sugar low GI
   1 tsp vanilla
   1/2 tsp baking powder
   1/4 tsp salt
   2/3 cup dark chocolate, chips or chopped
   1/2  cup raw macadamias, roughly chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Beat the margarine, sugars and vanilla until light and fluffy. Mix flour, salt and baking powder together in a separate bowl. 
  2. Stir dry into the sugar mixture with a wooden spoon, until well blended then stir in chocolate and macadamia chips. 
  3. Roll 1 tablespoon of mixture in your hands until ball forms, squash ball slightly and place onto baking paper lined tray and bake for 12- 15 minutes. They should be slightly golden, particularly along the edges but slightly gooey in the middle. Let cool on sheets for a few minutes to firm up then carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool.
I left one batch in the oven too long and they crumbled when using a spatula to get them off the tray.
So I decided to make a strawberry cookie 'ice-cream'.
This is based on the strawberry ice-cream I had made in the past, just mixed through with crumbled cookies...
