Happy Monday! On July Fourth, Bill and I attended a party where we had these GREAT cookies. Bill couldn't stop raving about them (and eating them!), so we asked for the recipe. Bill's friend said they were cashew cookies with brown butter frosting.
So a few days later Bill looked up the recipe and sent it my way. "You should make these," he said. So I did! These were so yummy and I wanted to share the recipe with you. This recipe is from the Land O Lakes website; I took a look at the site and there are lots of great recipes...take a look and give these a try!
Frosted Cashew Drop Cookies
1 c firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 c butter, softened
1 t vanilla
2 c flour
3/4 t baking powder
3/4 t baking soda
1/3 c sour cream
1 3/4 c cashew halves
1/2 c butter
2 c powdered sugar
3 T milk
1 t vanilla
Drop dough by level tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely.
Melt 1/2 cup butter in heavy 1-quart saucepan over medium heat. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until butter foams and just starts to turn golden (4 to 6 minutes). Immediately remove from heat. Pour into medium bowl; cool 5 minutes.
Add powdered sugar, milk and vanilla; beat until smooth. Frost cooled cookies. Top with cashew half, if desired.
