    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    These are very similar to those "butterball" Christmas cookies that I always remember around the holidays. However, these use CASHEWS, which really add a wonderful flavor! I made these for Christmas cookies in 2003, and they were, by far, everyone's favorite!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375.
    2. 2
      Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, beat the butter with ½ cup of the confectioners’ sugar with hand mixer at medium speed until creamy.
    4. 4
      Add the vanilla extract.
    5. 5
      Slowly beat in the flour, roasted cashews and salt until well combined.
    6. 6
      Divide the dough into 4 equal parts and shape into 1” logs.
    7. 7
      Wrap logs in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least ½ hour.
    8. 8
      Cut 1” pieces off of the refrigerated logs, and roll into balls.
    9. 9
      Place balls about ¾” apart on parchment lined sheets (should be about 3 cookie sheets worth) Bake cookies in oven for about 20 minutes, or until golden.
    10. 10
      Fill a shallow bow or pie plate with 2 cups of confectioners’ sugar.
    11. 11
      Immediately roll the hot cookies in the sugar to coat, a few at a time.
    12. 12
      Place on racks to cool.
    13. 13
      Once cookies are cooled, re-roll them again in confectioners’ sugar, so coating looks nice and white and even!
    14. 14
      Cookies can be stored in airtight container for about 1 week, or frozen for up to one month.

      Really really yummy. To cut down on the mess (we have a lot of young kids around during the holidays) I didn't roll them in the powdered sugar. Instead I made a glaze of powdered sugar, water, and some vanilla extract and pour that over the cookies.

      These cookies are very good. I will make them again. I made them hoping they would be like the Archway Cashew Nougat cookies sold each year before Christmas. They were not what I was looking for, but excellent cookies in their own right.
