Cashew Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

 
A few weeks ago, I got a package from a new wholly Nigerian company run by 2 young ladies called Uwa Earth Foods. The package contained a selection of their preservative free and all natural peanut and cashew butters - crunch peanut butter, spicy peanut butter, cashew butter and chocolate cashew butter. To say I was excited is an understatement. A lot of the things I love in 1 package: Female entrepreneurs, Organic food company, preservative free, very few ingredients, cute packaging and proudly Nigerian.
 
I went into mad scientist mode thinking about what to do with all these goodies apart from smearing on bread. This is one of the results. These cookies are chewy and rich. The creaminess and taste of the cashew butter adds a sophistication to these cookies that you will not get from peanut butter. The chocolate chips add just the right amount of sweetness. These cookies can be eaten warm or cold with some milk or cocoa which would be perfect for this rainy season. You can also serve this with plain vanilla ice cream for an indulgent treat.
 
To make about 30 cookies, you will need:
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 125g butter
  • 125g cashew butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar + 1 tablespoon set aside
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons liquid full cream milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • Whole cashew nuts for decoration
Directions:
  • In a bowl, sift flour, baking soda, salt and set aside
  • Using a stand or hand mixer, cream butters, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, egg, milk, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour mixture until incorporated. Add chocolate chips and stir with a wooden spoon till evenly mixed
  • Place in fridge for about 10 minutes
  • Using a cookie scoop, scoop dough unto baking sheets lined with parchment paper
  • Sprinkle each cookie with some granulated sugar and top with a whole cashew nut pressed into the dough
  • Bake in a preheated oven (350F) until golden brown - between 12 - 15 minutes
  • Let
  • Cool on baking sheets for 10 minutes and then transfer to wire racks to cool completely
Enjoy!!!!!
