Method: 
For the Macadamia Toffee
Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place the water & sugar in a small saucepan & cook to a golden caramel. Add the nuts & pour onto the lined tray. Set aside to cool. Chop roughly.
For the Salted Caramel Sauce
Boil 50ml of water & the caster sugar to make a dark caramel. Boil the salt & remaining water & carefully add this to the caramel with the cream. Add the brown sugar & the butter & cook until the sugar is melted. Allow to cool & become thick.
For the Pastry
Whisk together the sugar & the butter, add the eggs, & then the flour & salt. Do not over mix. Wrap & chill until firm. Roll out with a rolling pin to about 3mm thick & cut out rounds to fit the small tart moulds. Chill. Blind bake tart shells until lightly golden brown.
For the Cheesecake Mix
Mix together the cream cheese, sugar & sour cream. Add the eggs one at a time. Add the lemon juice & vanilla. Spoon into baked tart shells & bake at 160°C for 10-12 mins until firm but a little wobbly in the centre. Remove & allow to cool. Top with a spoon of caramel sauce & macadamia toffee.
