Eggless cashew butter cookies recipe with step by step photos. These are melt in mouth and delicious. Butter cookies mainly consist of butter, sugar and flour. Many variations to butter cookies depend on different flavors used in the cookies. These cookies are my kids favorite and I send them in lunch box too as they are homemade and healthy. These cookies go well with a cup of milk or coffee and I don’t mind having them as it is.

These are healthy with whole wheat flour, free of refined sugar which is replaced with cane sugar. I usually prefer using cane sugar, coconut sugar or brown sugar over refined sugar in cookies which gives nice flavor to the cookies. I have used rose essence for flavor and custard powder to give cream color to cookies. The cashewnut pieces on outer surface give a crunch to the cookies. Totally a melt in mouth butter cookies.

My Notes:

Oven temperature and time depends on individual ovens. So care should be taken not to burn them.

Baking soda is optional, I have used it to give texture to cookies. This can be skipped in the process.

Cane sugar is mildly sweet, so I have used more quantity. The quantity can be reduced.
