Coconut Cashew Cookies

Kim Biegacki


Two years ago I bought a huge bag of cashews from Sam's Club because I love them so. However, this bag was so big and I ate & ate and it seemed to not make a dent. So, I got on the internet and was searching for something to make with the cashews and came across this recipe. Now, normally I will give you the site to where I got my recipe but I have misplaced the orignal copy but if I find it I will let you know.

These are very flavorful and chewy cookie. If you love coconut and cashews it is worth the time to try them out. They may become a favorite of yours. My family really enjoyed them as much as I did! I will look forward to making them again this year.
