Crispy Cashewnut Cookies

Crispy Cashew Nut Cookies1

In less than one month's time we'll be celebrating CNY.  As usual I will bake some cookies & cakes for this special occasion.  For the love of baking, I prefer to bake my own cookies to share with my family & friends.  Here are my first batch of cookies baked by me - Crispy Cashewnut Cookies, one of the must have cookies for CNY.  My kids they just love it so much.  A very crispy & buttery taste cookies topped with cashewnut.  Yummy!!

Crispy Cashewnut Cookies's Recipe
- adapted & editted from Agnes Chang's Baking Made Easy

Crispy Cashew Nut Cookies2


  • Cream A till just combined.  Mix in B to form into a pliable dough.
  • Place dough in between 2 sheets of plastic, roll into 1/2 cm thick.  Cut into the shapes you preferred using a cookie cutter.
  • Place onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.  Press a half cashewnut on top of cookies and glaze it with beaten egg.
  • Bake cookies in pre-heated oven at 180c for about 20mins till golden brown.  Remove from oven.
  • Cool completely before storing.
p/s : The cookies are soft when it's still warm.  Make sure it's completely cool before remove the cookies from the baking tray.
