Recipe Ingredients for BROWN SUGAR CASHEW COOKIES


Cookie Ingredients:
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup Butter, softened
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup Sour Cream
1 3/4 cups cashew halves

2 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Recipe Directions for BROWN SUGAR CASHEW COOKIES

  1. Heat oven to 350F. Combine brown sugar and 1/2 cup butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low. Beat, adding flour, baking powder and baking soda alternately with sour cream, until well mixed. Stir in cashews.

  2. Drop dough by level tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely.

  3. 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). (WATCH CLOSELY.) Immediately remove from heat. Pour into medium bowl; cool 5 minutes.

  4. Add powdered sugar, milk and vanilla; beat until smooth. Frost cooled cookies. Top with cashew half, if desired.
