SCD Recipe: Cashew Butter Monster Cookies

Cashew Butter Monster Cookies

SCD cookies have always been a tough one for me to get right. A lot of the time I haven’t found them satisfying – there’s just something about the texture of cookies made with granulated and brown sugar that is so good. After tons of experimentation I came up with this Peanut Butter Cookie recipe about a year ago.

It’s one of my most popluar recipes. I love peanut butter and those cookies have a nice chewy texture with a crisp bottom. Recently, someone asked me about making cashew butter cookies. You can make the peanut butter cookie recipe using any nut butter so I decided to take things further and come up with a new recipe.

I’ve always been one to try to combine flavors and stuff desserts with as many tasty add-ins that I can. Like when I would get sent to the store to get ice cream (back in those days that I could do that) I would get the one that had the most stuff in it – candy, fruit, nuts, swirls, etc.

I put that same love of variety into these cookies and these monster cookies were born. They’re so flavorful – dates, nuts, raisins, and just a hint of spice – don’t skip the ginger if you don’t have to!

Give them a try and let me know what you think.
