Cashew Butter Cookies with Mini Chocolate Chips

Updated on January 14, 2020

Cashew Butter

My hubby wanted to try cashew butter, instead of the normal peanut butter because he had some random peanut sensitivities.

Problem was cashew butter is not super sweetened like peanut butter, plus the jar of cashew butter was runny. Well, the oil had risen to the top and the lump of cashews were in the bottom of the jar. I learned this while scooping the butter out of the jar.

I offered to return them, but it was decided that cookies were the answer.

  • 3 cups flour

Research

Upon looking for recipes, I found there were different methods. For instance, there was some 3 ingredient mix that promised to make the best cookies in the world.

Having trust issues, I decided to look for another recipe. I compared recipes. I found a recipe that used a lot of cashew butter, then doubled it to get rid of my 16 ounce jar in one swoop.

Stir the Base

With the egg mixed with the butter and sugar, you will get a smooth puree. Add the vanilla, and the cashew butter.

Flour next

Once that was mixed fairly well, I opened the bag of mini chocolate chips and dumped the entire bag on top of the dough. I squished them all in.

I took a butter knife and cut off a hunk. I squished and squashed it into a snake shape. Cut pieces. Roll each into a ball. Dip in sugar and place on the cookie sheet.

Flatten with fork. Twice. Once in each direction. Bake 375 twelve minutes. Let cool.

Spread out on pan. I started with 5 rows of four cookies, but they didn't spread, so I placed them tighter. 8 rows of four.
