Cashew Nut Cookies

My first baked for the Chinese New Year  ........ Cashew Nut Cookies.

Cashew Nut Cookies


250g butter

180g icing sugar

400g plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

180g ground cashew nuts

1 egg yolk

1 tsp vanilla extract

100g half cut, cashew nuts, for garnishing

Egg Wash:

1 egg white

1 egg yolk


Preheat oven to 150 Celcius

Sift plain flour and baking powder together

Cream butter and icing sugar till smooth and creamy.  Add in egg yolk and vanilla extract.

Add in flour and ground cashew nuts.  Mix well until it forms dough.

Roll dough to ¼” thickness and cut into your desire shape.

Light brush with egg white and place one cashew nut on top, thereafter brush again with egg wash.

Bake for 20-25 minutes till golden brown.

 Making cookies is very time consuming..... unlike baking cakes!
