No-Bake Cashew Brittle Bars
In these crunchy, salty-sweet no-bake bars, a touch of molasses enhances the natural sweetness of cashews, oats, and cinnamon and lends a rich taste to the crisp caramel base.
Cashew Butter Cookies
Rich cookies become richer with cashew butter. Cookies can be baked so they are either soft or crisp.
Indian-Spiced Cashew-Lime Cookies
Brightly colored spice mixes and candy-coated seeds are offered after dinner in many Indian restaurants. We used a mix called red mukhwas to garnish our cube-shaped spice cookies. Look for mukhwas and similar blends at Indian markets. Colored sprinkles and nonpareils can be substituted.
Spiced Ginger Cashews
