Recipe type: Cookies
Serves: 15-20 cookies
  • 1 cup all purpose flour (139 gm) (4.9 oz)
  • ½ cup cashews (74 gm) (2.6 oz) (grind them to powder consistency)
  • ⅛ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¾ cup sugar (163 gm) (5.8 oz)
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp regular milk
  • Sprinkles of your choice
  1. Grind cashews to a powder like consistency. In a bowl mix cashew powder, all purpose flour, baking soda and baking powder and stir.
  2. Cream butter and sugar until mixed. Add vanilla extract and mix. Now add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix. To it add 1 tbsp milk and stir until a soft dough forms.
  3. Place dough ball onto a plastic wrap, flatten the dough a bit and tightly wrap it with plastic wrap. Let it chill in refrigerator for around 30 minutes or so.
  4. When ready for baking, preheat oven to 375F.
  5. Place sprinkles on a plate. If your dough has been chilled for longer and is super hard on touching, let it sit on counter for 15-30 minutes until it's still little hard but rolls easily.
  6. I made each ball weigh around 31-34 gm but it's upto you what size cookies you want.
  7. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll dough into balls and roll these balls into sprinkles.
  8. See in post where I tell you how I like to roll them into sprinkles.
  9. Place them on baking sheet and bake for around 6-8 minutes. Let them cool completely . Once completely cool, store in airtight container.
