Recipe: Cashew Cookies

Back in the autumn, a number of gebana customers received a sample of ground cashew nuts to try out. Dorothe P. used them to bake tasty cookies.



  1. Roast the ground cashew nuts in a pan and then leave to cool. Dice the marzipan very finely.
  2. Mix together the marzipan, butter, sugar and cream. Add the flour (1) and stir until the dough is crumbly.
  3. Mix the flour (2) with the roasted, ground cashew nuts. Add salt.
  4. Mix together both mixtures and knead.
  5. Shape into approx. 3 cm thick rolls, firmly pressing everything together. Wrap the rolls in film and place in the fridge overnight.
  6. Halve the cashew nuts lengthways.
  7. Cut the rolls into approx. 0.5 cm thick discs. Brush over with egg yolk. Stick half a cashew nut onto each disc. Sprinkle with a little cane sugar.
  8. Bake at a medium temperature for around 10-15 minutes until the cookies are golden brown in colour.
