Cashew-Butterscotch Cookies




Cashew-Butterscotch Cookies

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt (scant)
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 1/3 cups butterscotch chips
3/4 cup coarsely chopped salted cashews

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a large sheet pan.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; stir in oats until well combined.

In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together butter and brown sugar until creamy, about 1-2 minutes. Beat in vanilla and egg until well combined. Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour mixture until just combined; beat in butterscotch chips and cashews until combined.

Drop dough onto cookie sheet, in large, rounded spoonfuls (about 3 tablespoons per cookie). Bake at 350 degrees F, for 11-13 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool for 2 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Makes 16-20 cookies, depending how big you make them

  4. I love love love cashews. I never thought of combining them with butterscotch. I'm doing a blondie experiment for school and I'm gonna try those in them... and maybe a handful of Macadamia nuts as well- love those, too.

  8. Wait, how did I miss two posts? My Danny would ban butterscotch chips in the house if he had his way, but we all know, I rule the kitchen!
    I'm trying to remember now why I bought some in the first place and I can't.

  9. Cashews are hands down my favorite nut, I can eat them all day. And sometimes do. Heh.

    I haven't had butterscotch chips since I was a kid but I'm pretty sure I liked them then. Of course, my tastes have changed a lot since then. :)

  10. I also love salted cashews! In fact as soon as I hit the publish botton I'll get up and go eat cashwes that my friend sent from Brazil, the big fatty kind. They're just so great in cookies!
    The chips, a bit too sweet, don't you think?

  11. Cashew anything pretty much makes my day. I'm nuts over those nuts. I think butterscotch chips should have a rightful place in the pantry, I mean they make all sorts of cherry/mint/raspberry ones, so why not an old faithful :)

  13. We love butterscotch chips. We love cashews. We love pecans. We love sugar a tad too much we think. We feel so much love right now, we might as well wear flowers in our hair.

  14. I like butterscotch chips, but my husband doesn't so we don't have them very often. In fact, the chow mein cookies I made have them in them, and he almost didn't eat any of the cookies. (Until he tasted one and couldn't tell there were butterscotch chips in them!) These sound really good - especially with cashews in them!

  15. Those look so good. I love Oatmeal Scotchies!

  16. You are such the baker...I can't keep up with you!

  17. You are such a dollbaby to throw some traffic my way! I hope my filthy language doesn't mortify too many of your readers. My mother-in-law accidentally forwarded that post around to all of her friends and family, and got a lot of shocked responses. >:)

    I've only come to enjoy butterscotch in my adulthood, since I discovered the sweet/salty thing. And I LOVE cashews. I should start trying some of your recipes instead of resigning my self to being a bad baker.

  18. This looks like the cookie(s) I should be receiving anyday now, shouldn't I? lol

  19. I wish I knew your secret to photographing cookies so delectably. You do such a superb job!

    I got you note too. Thank you!!!!

    Hugs and love,

  21. I never have any butterscotch chips left to bake with, because I eat them by the handfuls. So I guess I like them...a lot.

    I feel the same way about cashews...

    and butter...

    and sugar...

    oh, and cookies, too, especially yours.

  22. you are a baking fiend! i kinda agree about butterscotch. i don't mind it in recipes, but i've never been one to just crave that flavor. the cashews sound like a great add on. i love putting cashews in savory stuff. i should add them to more sweet stuff. i'll make sure to look at the pizza thing!

  23. i love butterscotch morsels, especially in oatmeal scotchies. there's nobody on god's green earth that can convince me that they actually taste like butterscotch, but i like 'em anyway. good stuff. :)

  24. Ugh, seriously, I love cashews...and cookies...this is heaven for a non chocolate fan like myself!

  25. Beautiful cookies! LOVE cashews. Also love butterscotch chips - though I agree that they're best in small doses (and with a big glass of water).

  28. hey! have you seen the sugar plum juice? It's made by Everfresh. It's really good! Anyway, made me think of you.

  29. I love butterscotch chips... and hard candies, and pudding and syrup... My husband makes fun of me because it's an "old people flavor".
    I'll bet the salted nuts were great with the butterscotch- I always feel like butterscotch has a slight saltiness to it- it was probably a fabulous compliment!

    P.s. These look great!

  34. So, you want to know how the cookie crumbles...in my mouth. I just tried the recipe...and may I say, my tongue fainted! (good thing I had some smelling-salts handy.)

    I even got the bright idea to use one like a cigarette patch on my arm...now I no longer crave cake. Dems some good cookies.

    Nuts? Maybe. Cashew crazy? Like a butterscotch cookie!

  35. Now why would any of us complain that you made cookies. I love your cookies!

  36. i haven't tasted a butterscotch chip in a long time, but if my memory serves me well, I believe i had nothing but adoration for them. i used them in a recipe for 7 layer bars that people went crazy over. i love cashews too

    ReplyDelete
  37. Your cookies look and sound delish. I love that you used cashews.

  38. Salty cashew cookies sound great to me, I could take or leave the butterscotch chips, since you asked :)

    Prudy, thank you. My pictures ARE looking better. Weird.

    Heather, no, but I'm going to look for it!

    VoodooHeather, Bah, I don't care. Swear away!

    Peter M, I think cookies might travel better. What do you think?

    Bakin, you are crazy. Glad you liked them.
