2 dozen cookies


  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ cup cashew butter

  • ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tablespoons milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Mix flour, baking soda, and salt together in a small bowl.

  3. Beat butter, white sugar, and vanilla extract together with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add cashew butter, brown sugar, egg, and milk to the butter mixture; beat until smooth. Gradually add flour mixture and mix until just incorporated into a dough.

  4. Roll dough into 1 1/2-inch balls and arrange onto a baking sheet. Lightly press a fork into the top of the balls to make a crosshatch pattern.

  5. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, 12 to 14 minutes.

Cook's Note:

For softer cookies, bake for 9 to 11 minutes. Remove while the cookies still look slightly raw; they will set a little more while they cool.
