I have to say many of my family and friends put these cashew nut cookies as their first choice from cookie box. Easy, few ingredients are needed, delicious; what else we want? So go for homemade cashew nut cookies!!!

For 25 cookies

The amount of cookies that you may made will differ upon the size of your cookie cutter. I used round cookie cutter with 2 inch wide diameter and I was able to make more than 25 cookies. If you can use wider round cookie cutter, cookies will turn out more beautiful.   

You can use any other nuts or mix of different type nuts for this recipe as per your liking. If you do please let me know how was it and send your photos too.

 Steps to make cookies:

  1. We need slightly roasted cashews in here, so you can either roast in a pan for 5-7min in medium heat or bake cashews in 150°C about 10min until they turn into golden brown.
  2. Keep few minutes to cool down roasted cashews and put into a jar cup to grind it to become smooth powder.
  3. Add Sifted flour, powdered cashews, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Give it a whisk to mix well and set aside.
  4. In a separate bowl beat room temperature butter until it become light in color. Then and powdered sugar and mix on low, gradually increase the speed and beat till mixture turn into light and fluffy.
  5. Add egg yolk and beat well, occasionally scraping the bowl down with a spatula.
  6. To that put flour mixture in on go. Using spatula keep mixing till no flour lumps can be seen in bowl. Then move into your clan hands and gently knead dough without applying too much pressure on it. Now you have soft playable dough to make cookies
  7. After 2-3minutes get one badge from dough onto middle of plastic or silicon mat, then turn mat into half and roll the dough into 5mm thickness wide.
  8. Cut circles out from flatted dough and carefully lift them using spatula, then place them on parchment paper aligned baking tray.
  9. Cut circles into half and make a space between cut line (just like below picture shows). Give it an egg wash before going to the oven and on that add half of cashew or peanut as per your choice.
  10. Bake on preheated oven at 175°C about 15-17minutes until cookies turn into light golden color. After cookie bakes put them on a cooling rack.
