Cashew nut cookies

Ingredients (for 15 cookies):

  • 3 egg whites
  • 400 gram plain cashew nuts
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • vegetable oil to grease a cookie sheet.


Separate the eggs and beat the egg whites in a mixing bowl with a hand mixer until stiff peaks form. Then gradually incorporate the icing sugar. Grind the cashew nuts with a blender as fine as possible. Add the cashew nuts, the cinnamon and the clove powder to the mixing bowl. Combine everything. You should have a rather solid mix.

Spread vegetable oil over a cookie sheet or 2 stainless steel plates. I don’t use butter for this because butter influences the taste of these cookies too much. With the help of 2 spoons set heaps of dough on the sheets. Leave enough space between them, as the cookies spread a lot during baking. Put them in the oven and bake at lowest temperature for around 30 minutes. The cookies should slightly brown all over without turning dark.
