white chocolate cashew cookies


very simple recipe for some very blonde cookies


i actually thought of making cookies with macadamia nuts, but due to me not being organised i had no choice and had to use cashews instead...and i do not regret it at all.

here is what you need


100g chopped cashews
150g chopped white chocolate or white chocolate chips
200g butter, unsalted and softened
125g sugar
   1 pinch of salt
   1 egg
200g all purpose flour
1tsp baking powder

here is what you have to do


- beat together butter and sugar until soft and creamy

- add the egg, flour, baking powder and salt and mix until completely combined

- fold 2/3 of the chopped chocolate and cashews in until fully incorporated

- preheat the oven to 175 degrees

- drop spoonfuls of cookie dough onto a lined baking sheet, leaving at least two inches of space between the cookies because they will spread out

- sprinkle the remaining 1/3 of the the chocolate and cashews

- bake for about 15-20 minutes

- leave the cookies to cool for 5-10 minutes before transferrng to a wire rack to cool

- enjoy
