- **I never get the same amount so I'm calling this one large batch of cookies, around 5 dozen.
This is a great cookie. I only made half a batch and I got 60 cookies. They are a good size -- I wouldn't them any larger. I didn't look at the recipe when I went to the Health Food store for the cashew butter and thought it was only 1 cup so hence the half recipe. How did I half an egg -- very carefully!!! Certainly worth the effort in getting the cashew butter.
I made these without using a mixer (my crazy dog goes crazier when she hears it). Other than that, I made the recipe as directed. I used my small scoop and the recipe made over 80 cookies. Just to make it a little more interesting, I added some mini chocolate chips to the last batch. These cookies are so good! I'll probably make them for the cookie trays next Christmas! Thank you for posting this recipe!
