Yield: About 2-1/2 dozen.

This nutty cashew cookie is topped with a chocolate candy. Look for cashew butter at your local health-food store.


  • 3/4 cup cashew butter
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1-1/4 cups packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped roasted cashews
  • about 30 foil-wrapped chocolate candies


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease two cookie sheets. Cream the cashew butter, butter, and brown sugar. Beat in the egg and vanilla until smooth. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt, and stir into the creamed mixture. Fold in the chopped cashews. Unwrap the chocolates. With floured hands, roll the dough into 1-1/2-inch balls, leaving room between them on the sheets. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes, or until the tops are gently rounded and still soft to the touch. As the cookies come out of the oven, firmly press a chocolate candy into the center of each one. Cool on the sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool.
