Crispy Cashew Nuts Cookies 1

Recently, My DH kept prompting me to try baking some CNY cookies for him to test. He wanted to choose some tasty one among a few types, i bake and gave to his customer as a gift. (Coz i never bake any CNY cookies before, he don't trust me) I should be trying some Log Cake instead CNY cookies. OMG! My Son is asking for his dear gingerbread man. So i decided to try my DH favorite Cashew Nuts Cookies. But he like those traditional type, so I'm trying my luck. :>

Cream butter and sugar

Add in egg and vanilla essence

Mix all flour and cashew nuts powder

Lastly,  gently fold them together

Tata! Out of the oven now

  • 70g Castor Sugar
  • 30g Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 180g Plain Flour
  • 20g Custard Powder
  • 1 Small Egg
  • 60g Roasted Finely Grinded Cashew Nuts Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • Some Roasted Cashew Nuts, halved (decoration)
  • 1 Egg Yolk (for glazing)
  • a few drop of yellow colour (optional)

  1. Cream butter and sugar till creamy. Add egg and vanilla essence mix till well combined.
  2. Mix in all the sifted flour and grinded cashew nuts to form into a pliable dough.
  3. Place the dough in between 2 sheets of parchment paper, roll into 1/2 cm thick.
  4. Cut into shape using any cookie cutter of your choice.
  5. Place onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or aluminium foil.
  6. Press the half cashew nut on top of the cookies and glaze with the egg yolk.
  7. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180C for 15-20 mins till golden brown.
  8. Cool completely before storing.
Sadly to say he reject this. I'll continue to try until i reach the taste.
