These cookies are real crowd-pleasers with a delicate flavor and a browned butter frosting. I ALWAYS get requests for the recipe when I share them with friends or bring them to church potlucks. The cashews make them different and the spices and sour cream give them a lovely flavor and consistancy. You'll want this one for your cookbook!
