This is an amazing and unique cookie from a 1972 Gourmet Magazine! You can also just do the first part to make cashew praline. But when you bake the praline into the cookie, it becomes gooey and oh-so-delicious. It was recently featured as part of "Gourmet’s Favorite Cookies: 1941-2008". I think these are best with roasted and salted cashews- they add a whole new flavour dimension.
