White Chocolate Cashew Cookies


[Sweeps away cobwebs and thick layer of dust.]

Anyone still here?

[Pauses, listening for a reply.]

So sorry for taking off like that...

[Wobbles from percussive echo of sheer emptiness.] 

It's just that I've been a bit busy, writing for magazines and stuff. Woo-hoo...


So, now I'm back and planning to post new content very soon. Really.


How about a cookie while you wait?

White Chocolate Cashew Cookies

Time flies when you're working on deadlines. It's been months since my last post and my only excuses are fortunate circumstances: I've recently been contributing regularly to several publications here in Manila! I hope to share some of these articles as I finally get around to the long-planned revamp of this site. In the meantime, here's a treat to tide you over.


1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsps vanilla extract
2-3 ounces white chocolate chips
3/4 cups toasted cashews, coarsely chopped

To make:

Preheat oven to 300F/150C. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt, and set aside. In a separate bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla until blended. Fold in flour mixture until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts until evenly blended into cookie dough.

Drop by tablespoons onto cookie sheets and bake for 9 to 12 minutes (or until cookies are lightly golden on the bottom).
