1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg

1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1 cup smooth cashew butter

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment or a silicone baking mat.
  2. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter and both sugars. Beat on medium until light, fluffy and creamy. Add in the egg and vanilla. Mix to combine. Next, add in the cashew butter and mix until fully combined.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Slowly add to the butter mixture and mix on low speed until you no longer see any flour bits.
  4. Using a medium cookie or ice cream scoop, scoop the dough, flattening the bottom, and place on the prepared baking sheet. Make lines or a crosshatch pattern on the top of each cookie with a fork.
  5. Bake until the cookies are golden around the edges, puffed up and set, 11 to 12 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet then remove to a wire rack to cool fully. Repeat with the remaining cookie dough.
