It’s time for another delicious cookie recipe and what better than a mix of cashews and chocolate chips. This one-bowl cookie recipe is easy to make and doesn’t create a lot of dirty dishes…yay. These Cashew Chocolate Chip Cookies are perfect for an afternoon snack or to take to your next get-together and is sure to be a hit with both kids and adults alike.
What makes these cookies a hit for me is that there is no rolling of cookie dough required. Simply mix up the ingredients in one bowl, form the dough into 1 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet. Flatten the cookies to about a third of their height and bake.
Of course, if you don’t like cashews you can substitute for another type of nut. Think peanuts, almonds, walnuts, or even macadamia nuts.
Start to finish these cookies only take approximately 30 minutes!
