  • Sift together the flour, bread flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt into a large bowl and set aside.
  • In another bowl, cream together the butter, shortening and sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla and beat well.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  • Add the chocolate chips and cashews to the dough. Stir well. This will be very thick, and I sometimes use my hands to mix together.
  • Using a spoon, scoop the dough into a rough ball, about the size of a golf ball, and place on the baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle lightly with sea salt and bake until light brown and and set for about 9-10 minutes in a 350 degrees oven.
  • Cool cookies on a cooling rack and enjoy!

<p>Hi! I'm very fortunate to be married to my best friend! My husband and I own our own business, and I work there 3-4 days a week. We have 4 children, a girl and three boys...all out of the nest. Our daughter is Nolan'sMom here at Zaar. We are so blessed to have two little grandsons; Nolan and Blake, and two little grandaughters; Evangeline and Willow. Our daughter-in-law is run for your life here at zaar. Us girls all enjoy trying out recipes and sharing the results when we're all together! Some of my hobbies are jogging, biking, areobics, reading, and of course trying out new recipes on Zaar. My DH and I love to go out on dates to our favorite resturant, or just go out for coffee. I just recently got a new digital camera, and am trying to figure out how to take good pictures of the food I make. It's more complicated that I thought it would be!</p>
