Made these last night and oh wow, these are so good already without the frosting. I'm afraid I'll have to make them again to have 'em with the frosting. Thanks for this fantastic recipe! Definetly a keeper!!!
My daughter go ta tea set from her Grandmother for Christmas and it has be non stop tea for months. You'd think we were British! This is one of the recipes we've had along the way. I'm more on the four star side with these but DH and DD1 loved them so 5 it is. I kinda think they taste better the day after you make them. Of course, very few made it that far in our house.
My father went to school in a one room school house, (back in the 30's and 40's)and his teacher used to make these for the class all the time. She had come across the recipe, and gave it to my mother to make for my dad. My mother HATES baking, so I inherited the recipe. My father has been gone 19 years now, and I did have the chance to make these for him before he passed. But seeing this recipe has brought back great memories.
These are fantastic cookies! I've made them many years for Christmas and was happy to see the recipe posted here. The brown butter frosting is so delicious and makes these cookies extra special. I like to garnish the tops with whole cashews before the frosting sets--not only is it attractive, it also gives a hint as to the cookie flavor. Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe!
My favorite cookie in the world! Do put cashews on the frosting, it keeps them from sticking if you store them in a tin. We make these for Christmas, everyone who trys them raves!
My parents are coming to visit, & Dad loves cashews, so these seemed like the perfect thing to make. I followed the recipe to the "t". No substiutuions, additions, or omissions. I got 42 tender, nutty, rich cookies out of this recipe. I think it's important to use real butter here, no margarine. They are wonderful! Thanks Nessa, will make them again.
