Ingredients
  • 1 cup ALL PURPOSE FLOUR
  • 0.50 cup BUTTER WITHOUT SALT
  • 0.50 cup SUGARS GRANULATED
  • 0.25 cup CASHEW NUTS RAW
  • 0.50 tsp BAKING POWDER
  • 1 pinch SALT TABLE
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees and line the baking sheet with a parchment paper. 

  2. In a wide bowl cream the butter and sugar together using an electric mixer. Add finely chopped cashew nuts, all-purpose flour, salt, baking powder and mix well. Knead to a soft and smooth dough. 

  3. Divide the dough into small portions and shape them into your desired shape using a cookie cutter (I used a heart shape cookie cutter) or simply roll into small circles in between your palms and press slightly for the round shape cookies.

  4. Arrange on a parchment paper with a 2-inch space apart between each cookie and bake in a pre-heated 350 degrees oven for 10 - 12 mins until the bottom side of a cookie color turns to a light golden brown.

  5. Allow the cookies to cool and serve or store in an airtight container
