I made these as a snack at my daughter's first b-day party, and the kids loved them. My husband takes them to work every once in a wile and I haven't heard a complaint yet. His boss's wife called me for the recipe. They are just plain, simple, and DELICIOUS!!!
- 1⁄2 cup roasted cashews
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons lemon extract
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- additional sugar
- Preheat oven to 325°. Place cashews in food processor; process until finely ground. Add butter, sugar, lemon extract and vanilla; process until well blended. Add flour; process using on/of pulses until dough is well blended and forms ball.
- Shape dough in 1 1/2-inch balls; roll in additional sugar. Place about 2-inches apart on ungreased baking sheet; flatten slightly with bottom of glass dipped in sugar.
- Bake 18 minutes or just until set and edges are slightly browned. Remove cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
These are wonderful. Easy, delicious and pretty.
