Ingredients

Cookies

  • 1 roll (16.5 oz) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 3/4 cup coarsely chopped cashews
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chunks or white vanilla baking chips

Icing

  • 1/3 cup butter (do not use margarine)
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons milk

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir in cashews and white chocolate chunks. Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 2
    Bake 9 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheets; place on wire racks.
  • 3
    While cookies are baking, in 1-quart saucepan, cook butter over medium heat, stirring constantly, until light golden brown. Remove from heat. Stir in remaining icing ingredients until smooth.
  • 4
    On top of warm cookies, immediately spoon about 1 teaspoon icing (if icing becomes too thick, reheat over low heat).

  • In this recipe, butter is necessary to obtain the browned butter flavor. Margarine will not provide the same flavor and will burn quickly.
