Cashew Nuts Cookies

Buying ready made cashew nuts from stores seems so expensive. I like cashew nuts but not willing to pay for higher price for ready one. Last Friday i went to the market to get some raw one, just in case i'm in the mood to bake. So now it came in handy and I use my microwave to cook them - oil free.

Here's the recipe :-

105g butter
50g icing sugar
1/2 egg yolk
1/4tsp vanilla essence
125g plain flour
30g corn flour
1/4tsp baking powder
100g ground cashew nuts

* extra cashew nuts for decorate & egg wash to brush over

  1. Sift plain, corn flour & baking powder together and set aside
  2. Cream butter with icing sugar till light
  3. Add in egg yolk & vanilla essence. Mix well
  4. Stir in dry ingredients and ground cashew nuts. Mix well. Chill dough in fridge for 40 mins
  5. Shape dough into a small ball and place half cashew nut on top of cookes and brush over with the egg wash
  6. Bake at 180c for 15mins
