Recipe by Impera_Magna
READY IN: 30mins




  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In a large bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, and sugar; beat at high speed for appx 3 minutes with electric mixer.
  • Stir in cashews.
  • Sift flour, salt, & baking powder directly into the bowl.
  • Use your hands to mix the dough as quickly and efficiently as possible; form into a rough ball.
  • Lightly flour a clean, dry work surface; add dough and roll out to appx 1/4" thick.
  • Cut into simple shapes and place them on ungreased cookie sheet. (I cut them into diamonds, similar to bakalava -- didn't want to over-work the dough by re-rolling).
  • Bake in center of oven for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned on the bottom.
  • Cool for at least 10 minutes before eating.
