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!

  1. Hi Mel, very addictive cashew nut cookies. Yours look good, I yet to start baking any cookies. It's true very time consuming compare to cakes and dessert. Anyway I don't eat that much cookies or else my waistline will split. LOL

    Have a nice day, regards.

  2. Hi Mel! Nice cookies.. everyone is busying now with his/her CNY baking... I should start soon... I mean I should ask my wife to start soon... Ha.

  3. Hi, Mel, do you believe that if I tell you only today I thought of a kind of cashew nut cookies which I had in Malaysia b4 but I can't recall what exactly the cookie is becoz this is my 8th year for not going back to celebrate and after seeing your cookies, I think this is it, haha! And this cookies aren't cheap! Like it very much!

  4. ooh.. it's that time of the year already ^^ your cashew cookies look scrumptious, mel! well worth your effort and time ^^

  5. Mel, I love your cookies! Looks very shiny and nice with the cashew nut on top. I love cashew nuts so I know I will love eating these cookies!

  6. Ya, its very shiny looking, so tempting! I salute all you ladies who bake their own CNY cookies. I am too lazy, just thinking of the several days of major cooking is enough to knock me out!

  7. Mel, I baked and posted my cny cookies too :) Like what Phong Hong said your cookies very shiny and nice. I can see the yummy "BIG" cashew nuts, well done.

  8. Mel,
    I love cashew nuts and I know i will love your cashew nuts cookies.

  9. These cookies are very addictive and they're so evenly baked!

  10. they look perfect to me! Some cashew nuts cookies that we buy from outside do not contain any cashewnuts in the dough, just a piece of cashew nut on top of the cookie:(

  11. LOVELY cookies & look tasty too! I just love how you've shape these delicious cookies! YUM! ;)
