Cashew Cherry Cookies#SundayFunday

These are mouth melting cookies. I made them for Christmas. They so easy and quick to make. Try them and I assure you that you can't stop eating at one.
50 Grams Butter
50 Grams Vegetable Shortening
100 Grams Powdered Sugar
150 Grams All Purpose flour
100 Grams Cashewnuts - finely chopped
A Few Chopped Cherries
1 Egg - yolk & white separated
½ Teaspoon Vanilla Essence

Cream butter and sugar well till light and fluffy, add the egg yolk, essence and flour, form into soft dough. Cling warp and refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes. Then pinch small piece of the dough, roll them into balls.
Beat the egg white lightly dip the cookie balls in it and roll in chopped cashews. Pierce a chopped cherry in the center. Place them on a greased tray. 
Bake at 180°C for 12 - 15 minutes.
My Notes
If you do not want to use vegetable shortening then make them with all butter.

  2. Ground cashew meal sounds so delicious in a cookie.
