cashew cookie recipe?

Anyone have a cashew cookie recipe they'd be willing to share? I'm especially interested in something with both chewy and crunchy textures to it. Thanks very much!

  1. There is a cashew cookie in Rose Levy Beranbaum's Christmas cookie book. I don't remember a lot about it, as it's been probably a decade since I made it (not a big cashew fan) but I liked it, and my dad LOVED it (he adores cashews.) I seem to recall there's also a cashew cookie in Martha Stewart's cookie book, but I haven't made that one. I hope I'm not leading you astray on that one...

      tempehtempeh, I smashed up TJ's sweet and salty (cashews mostly) trail mix and used it in a Mexican wedding cookie that I found in tastespotting. The novelty (duh!) of this particular wedding cookie was that it was flattened, and oddly enough, it made a difference! Well, to me. I ate them all.

      Here is the recipe. I tried it with both the cashew mix and pistachios and it was delish both times:

    2. i have made this recipe from gourmet's december edition, dutch caramel cashew cookies. you make a cashew praline which you blend into cookie dough. it's delicious, definitely crunchy / chewy / melty. easier than it sounds.

      1. Thanks for the great suggestions and recipes - I'll report back!

        1. Funny, cashew cookies have been on my radar lately too. This is the one I printed out but haven't tried yet. It got good reviews. I plan to chocolate coat instead of frosting with the confect. sugar/whipped cream.

          1. Here's a recipe from Gourmet for Brazilian cashew cookies that I intended to make. It's crumbly, though.
