These are delicious! This is a great cookie - the flavor is so good. The saltiness of the cashews is delicious with the sweetness of cookie. The frosting is excellent, too. I will definitely make these again.

Outstanding taste treat and easy to make! I made as posted except that I used unsalted butter. I do sort of wish that the NV were for 42 cookies so I knew what 1 cookie was "worth". Thanks CoffeeB for posting a "company" quality cookie sure to impress guests. Made for Photo Tag.
