Cashew Nuts Cookies

This year, beside pineapple tarts, I didn’t have chance to bake more for CNY cookies, only extra 2 more varieties. The first one are these cashew nuts cookies, which I had been on my baking list since last year, but only this year I got chance to try this. Thanks Wen for her generous of sharing her Auntie’s yummy recipe.

250 gr Butter (used quality butter and chilled)
190 gr Icing Sugar

420 gr Plain flour (I reduced to 320 gr)
1 Tbsp Milk powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
½ tsp Salt

1 no Egg
2 tsp Vanilla Extract

200 gr Ground roasted Cashew nuts (I used 300 gr)
300gr Cashew nuts (Halves it, bake until half cooked for topping)

Extra egg for egg wash

- Sift flour, milk powder, soda and salt together, set aside.
- Cream butter and icing sugar till light and fluffy.
- Add eggs and vanilla till well mix.
- Lastly add sifted flour & ground cashew nut, mix well with the low speed.
- Form a soft dough and chill till firm (min. 2 hours)
- Roll the form and cut into the preference shape using cookies cutter
- Egg wash a layer first, place cashew nut on it, slighlty press. Egg wash again on top of the cashew nut too, to make the nuts look shiny.
- Bake at preheated oven of 180 degree C for 15-25 mins.

Yields : approx 100 pcs for half recipe.


  1. i never have cashew cookies this year but in the past, the ones that i bought seem to be lack of cashewnut taste..i guess there's very little ground cashewnuts in it. But here, i can see there's generous amount of ground cashewnuts..mmm..must be goood!

  2. Hi Doris, glad to see you tried out the recipe and hope you like it too!

  3. Hi Lena,
    Thank you .... this recipe is a keeper, I like nuts, just greedy, add extra nuts in it ... and happy with the end results, ie. crunchy and very tasty.

    Hi Wen,
    Thanks for sharing this recipe to us. The cookies taste fantastic. I got the other tray which I baked longer and darker colour (like yours), it taste more fragrant. I certainly will make this again, and will bake it longer.
