Cashew Butter Cookies

I bought a large container of freshly made cashew butter in a local Mennonite Community and wondered what to do with it all. I thought making cookies sounded like a great idea! I adapted a peanut butter cookie recipe and voila, Cashew Butter Cookies! I hope you enjoy them as much as my family is tonight.

We love this soft, flavorful cookie! Can't find cashew butter? No problem, you can make your own! Use a 14 oz can of cashews and 3 tablespoons of olive oil.  Blend in a food processor until you get the consistancy of butter. Yum!! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Cashew Butter Cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cream butters and sugars together thoroughly.
  • 2Add vanilla and egg mixing completely into creamed mixture. Then add salt (if using) and baking soda. I find that these items mix more completely if added to wet ingredients.
  • 3Add flour 1/2 cup at a time mixing thoroughly with each addition. Scoop onto cookie sheets spacing apart because they will spread.
  • 4Bake at 375 degrees for 9-10 minutes for a soft cookie. If you prefer a more crisp, slightly darker cookie you may bake up to 12 minutes.
