Making Healthy Cashew Almond Cookies For Chinese New Year
These cashew cookies are super easy and quick to make!
Once you have made the dough, you can portion it out, and roll into balls. Placed the balls of dough onto lined baking tray, egg wash and bake at 150C. It’s that simple!
What Ingredients Do I Need for These Cashew Almond Cookies?
You will just need these 5 ingredients:
- Cake or Top Flour: We will be sifting the flour and icing sugar together.
- Icing Sugar
- Oil: Any type of neutral tasting oil will do. I am using rice bran oil.
- Unsweetened Natural Cashew Nut Butter: If you do not have cashew nut butter, you can also use unsweetened natural peanut butter.
- Ground Almond
Other than these main ingredients, you will also need 1 egg yolk + 1 tsp of milk for egg wash.

How Do These Cashew Cookies Taste Like?

How Can I Store These Cookies?
The cookies will keep well in airtight container in normal room temperature, up to 2 weeks. If you will be gifting the cookies, you can use food safe silica pack at the bottom of the container and seal the container lid with scotch tape, so that the cookies can last slightly longer.
