As I said yesterday, I vowed to print several recipes and make as many as I can this week to participate in Cooking With Alicia & Annie. Yesterday, while I had an Amish pot roast in the lower oven in my new Dutch oven (post coming, YUM!) I also made some Cashew Sugar Cookies that I found on Annie’s.
Instead I used my cookie scoop to form balls, dipped the tops in turbinado sugar and then pressed a cashew into the top. They have a bit of a pasty texture, probably because of the addition of nuts and no other wet ingredients besides the butter (no egg, milk, vanilla, etc) but the flavor is really great! Didn’t stop me from eating several LOL I give this 4 out of 5 stars, but only because of the pasty texture. :)
Cashew Sugar Cookies
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup ground cashews
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
In mixing bowl combine flour, ground nuts, sugar and brown sugar. Cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Form mixture into ball and knead until smooth. On lightly floured surface roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into 1 1/2 inch circles. Place one inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Lightly sprinkle with additional sugar. Then lightly press a whole nut in center of each cookie. Bake 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees. Remove and cool on a wire rack.
