Cashew Crunch Cookies

These are some of my favorite cookies. Chuck and I happen to love cashew nuts so on the rare occasion when we can stop eating them I make these cookies. 

This cookie reminds me of a rich Sandie type and is delicious soft or crispy.


2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup butter softened
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chopped cashews


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  1. In a large bowl combine all ingredients except cashews.  Blend well with mixer.  
  2. Stir in cashews, mix thoroughly.  
  3. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto lightly greased cookie sheets.  
  4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown. 
  5. Cool a minute or so, then carefully remove to a rack to finish cooling
  6. Store in a cookie jar and enjoy!
I like mine lightly browned when the edges first start to brown.

Makes approximately 45 one inch cookies

It was a gift from Carly

I like these cute little boxes and tissue for cookies
It is fun to bake, decorate, and just make things festive, don't you think?

    1. Hey Lisa, 
      Thank you! They are good! I had to make myself eat a salad for lunch. I do love a salad though!

  2. These look fantastic, Dolly! We love cashews, too. Matter of fact, cashews and peanuts are the only nuts John will eat. Claims he doesn't like nuts....lol Saving this recipe. Hope you are staying safe! xo Diana
