Best Cashew Nut Cookies Recipe for Festive Seasons

Recipe Rating

3.5 out of 5 stars from 13 ratings of Cashew Nut Cookies Recipe


Here is a well loved cashew nut cookies recipe. Once you have tasted one, you cannot resist having more! It is so sinfully delicious ! Great for any festive celebrations.

A friend made the cashew nut cookies with the given recipe for us and we loved it so much that we asked for the recipe. We have never tasted another cashew nut cookies recipe as good as this. The savoury cookies melt in your mouth, and ends with crunchy cashew nut bite. Utterly delicious!


Ingredients


120g butter

120g vegetable shortening

½ cup sugar

½ tsp vanilla essense

Pinch of salt

1 cup grounded cashew nuts

1¼ cup self raising flour

1 cup plain flour

Red cherries/cashew nuts for topping



Method

1. Cream butter, vegetable shortening and sugar in the mixer till smooth.

2. Add in vanilla essence and salt.

3. Stir in grounded cashew nuts and both types of flour. Mix well.

4. Divide and shape mixture into small balls. I like to use the ½ tbsp measuring spoon to press it into round shape. Alternatively, you can make it into heart shape, cresent shape and so on.

5. Press a cut cherries or cashew nut at the top.

6. Arrange them neatly on a baking tray. (Note: They do not expand)

7. Bake at 280°F for 15 - 20 minutes (until golden brown).

And ta-da.... the cookies are ready !

Beautiful Christmas Gift Box

 

Thinking of making cookies as gift for the festive season ? Homemade gifts are always much more appreciated and loved. The thoughts and efforts put into it is priceless !

Wrap up or Box up the Delectable Cookies as a Gift

If you enjoy doing arts and crafts, why not making your own gift box and Christmas card? There are plenty of examples in youtube, and I have selected some of the good ones to be shown here.

Alternatively, if time is running out, you can always buy some gift bags, ribbons and tags to wrap up the gifts. While one could possibly make her own wrapper and save money, if she can get the packaging materials at good price, she can keep the whole gift preparation process simple, less time consuming and very presentable.

Simple and inexpensive, I think this homemade gift is more meaningful and will be appreciated by those who receive it. And I will have a lot of fun baking the cookies, gift box and wrap it up beautifully too!

      thanks so much for your feedback, cookie. I think brushing the egg yolk on the top before baking is good idea to give the cookie a nice yellow colour.

      I try your recipe but I changed something becoz I don't have self-raising flour and not add more salt.(My cashew is salty)

      I brush egg yolk wash on top before backing.

      I used 300'F and 16mins

      come out great! Thank you

      I love homemade cookies. They always have a different feel to it as compared to those commercially produced cookies.

      During Chinese New Year, this cashew nut cookie is one of my favourite. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe, now I don't have to wait till Chinese New Year to enjoy them. Just have to convince someone...

      Yes, FloBe. I like that video too. It's so Japanese and Korean to wrap it with fabric. Traditional and homely.

      Thanks for the recipe, but what I found the most interesting was the video using fabric to wrap gifts--eliminating the need to use paper!
