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.
