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

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c
    real butter, softened
  • 1/2 c
    cashew butter, homemade or commercially made (if commercially made you may omit salt)
  • 1/2 c
    granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c
    light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp
    real vanilla extract
  • 1
    large egg
  • 1/8 tsp
    salt
  • 1/2 tsp
    baking soda
  • 1 1/2 c
    all purpose, unbleached flour

How to Make Cashew Butter Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream butters and sugars together thoroughly.
  2. Add 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.
  3. Add flour 1/2 cup at a time mixing thoroughly with each addition. Scoop onto cookie sheets spacing apart because they will spread.
  4. Bake 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.
