Yes, you can.

You'll need to all Remote Access (SSH) or Remote Desktop on the MacBook to connect back and move files though. You need to do this on the MacBook from Preferences -> Sharing before you can connect over the network cable. You'll also need to manually assign IP Addresses to both machines (as neither will hand out DHCP in the configuration you're talking about).
