damn good cookies.
so good in fact that i had to put a handful of them under lock & key until i was able to find a few minutes to photograph evidence of them. they have a wonderful melt in your mouth quality, and stacked full of sweet white chocolate and buttery cashews they're irresistible.
white chocolate & cashew cookies
makes 20-24 cookies
1/2 cup earth balance margarine
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup organic cane sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 tbsp almond milk
1 1/2 cup organic all purpose pastry flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup vegan white chocolate chips
1/3 cup raw cashew pieces
cream together the earth balance and sugars in a large bowl. mix in the vanilla and almond milk. sift in the flour, soda & salt and stir until well mixed before stirring in the chocolate and cashews. scoop out by the tablespoon and drop onto a parchment lined baking sheet. (no need to flatten them as they'll spread as they bake.) place in a 350f oven for 10-12 minutes. remove and allow to cool 10 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
so if you've resolved to cut down on the sugary sweets this year, this is a batch of cookies to make and share with good friends. but be sure to treat yourself to at least a couple of them as all healthy diets have room for cookies in the balance.
especially when they're this good.
