Cashew Butter Cookies

It's been a while since I've blogged about food or gave out a recipe. Today I found another winner! It's cashew butter cookies! The smell and taste of roasted cashews is simply heaven! When I pass by the grocery, I actually almost never fail to buy snack sized toasted cashew nuts! It's one of my favorite snacks. If you like cashew, then you will definitely love these cookies! Continue reading to get the recipe.

Cashew butter cookie recipe
(adapted from Martha Stewart's recipe)

1 3/4 cup roasted cashew nuts (unsalted, for puree)
1/3 cup roasted cashew nuts (unsalted, for topping)
1 T olive oil
1 1/4 cup All purpose flour
1/2 t table salt
12 T unsalted butter
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 t vanilla extract


1. Puree 1 3/4 cup roasted cashew nuts with 1 T olive oil. Use a food processor or blender. You should have around 3/4 cup to 1 cup of cashew puree.

2. Sift all purpose flour and salt. Set aside.

3. In a mixing bowl, mix together butter, cashew puree, sugar, and vanilla extract. Add egg and mix well. Add all purpose flour and salt mixture. Mix until well combined.

4. Refrigerate dough for 20 - 30 minutes.

5. Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C). Line baking sheets with parchment/baking paper.

6. Remove though from fridge and shape into desired ball sizes. Place on baking sheet 2-3 inches apart. Flatten dough balls as this will not spread that much during baking. Top with remaining cashew nuts.

7. Bake for 12-15 minutes (check regularly for desired softness or crispiness).

The cookies were crisp on the outside but soft and creamy on the inside. Every bite bursts of the smell of roasted cashew butter! I can't wait to try a chocolate hazelnut variation. Happy baking and snacking!
