Salted dark chocolate chip cashew cookies

I am always looking for interesting variations for chocolate chip cookies and this caught my eye, as cashews are not frequently used in baking. The dough is simple to make, especially since the butter is melted, instead of creamed with the sugar. I followed the recipe and added the ¼ cup of cashews and ¼ cup of chips and felt like there wasn’t anywhere near enough, so I added an additional ¾ of a cup of each. I like my cookies bursting with goodness.

The cookies baked up crisper than I like (I prefer a soft chewy cookie), but I really liked the flavor of the cashews and dark chocolate.


1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
6 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup cashews, cut in half
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
Flaky sea salt, such as Maldon


1. Adjust rack to middle position and preheat oven to 325°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together melted butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Whisk in egg and vanilla. Change to a wooden spoon and stir in flour mixture until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips and cashews.
3. Use a cookie scoop to drop dough by rounded tablespoon onto prepared cookie sheets. Sprinkle cookies with sea salt. Bake until golden, about 12 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
