Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oven to 350° F. In a food processor, process the cashews until finely ground.

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the ground cashews, flour, cardamom, and salt; set aside.

  • Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and ⅓ cup of the sugar on medium-high until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in the vanilla.

  • Reduce mixer speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture, mixing until just combined (do not overmix).

  • Shape the dough into balls (about 1 tablespoon each) and place 2 inches apart on baking sheets.

  • Bake, rotating the baking sheets halfway through, until just beginning to brown, 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Place the remaining ⅓ cup of sugar on a plate. A few at a time, roll the cookies in the sugar to coat.
