Choco-Macadamia Treats

2 cups flour, plus 3 T
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
3/4 tsp vanilla
1 7 oz jar macadamia nuts, chopped
8 oz milk chocolate, melted and slightly cooled

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 9X13″ pan with non-stick cooking spray.  In a large bowl, whisk together 2 cups of the flour, baking soda, and salt.  In another bowl beat butter and sugar until fluffy, about 2 minutes.  Beat in egg and vanilla.  On low, beat flour mixture until just combined.  Fold in 1 cup of the nuts.  Reserve 1/2 cup dough.  With floured fingers, press remaining dough evenly over the bottom of prepared pan.  Spread melted chocolate over dough.  With hands, mix remaining nuts and the 3 T flour into reserved 1/2 cup dough; crumble nut mixture evenly over chocolate.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden.  Let cool before cutting.  Divine!
