Salted Cashew Crunch Cookies

Q: What is blue and smells like red paint?

A: Blue paint

Moving right along.

You all know I love Salted anything. I especially love these cookies because they are different, they have cashews and they are salted. Grrrrrr-8.

I looked at the recipe a few times and thought that maybe flour had been unintentionally omitted. I mean, this is a King Arthur Flour recipe.

But, no. Not meant to have flour. So what you get is a crisp, delectable cookie that is totally delicious.

Salted Cashew Crunch Cookies


1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats, ground for 30 seconds in a food processor
2 cups coarsely chopped cashews
Sea salt for topping


1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. In a medium bowl, beat butter, sugar, salt, baking powder, vanilla, and egg. Add oats and mix. Then, stir in cashews.

3. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto lightly greased or lined baking sheets. Sprinkle each cookie with salt. Flatten cookies to about 3/8-inch thick using the palm of your hand or the bottom of a glass.

4. Bake 12-14 minutes, or until light golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool on the baking pans.

Makes about 2 & 1/2 dozen cookies.

Recipe from King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking

The other day when I played the Washed Out Video for Amor Fati (in this post), I learned that the man in the video is Luke Rathborne.

“Who is that?”, I asked myself.

A very happy discovery. This is why I love music so much. You’re checking out one thing and before you know it you find something else that you love.

I headed over to Luke Rathborne’s site and listened to his music posted there. Now I’m hooked.

Luke Rathborne, from Maine and now one of the Brooklyn crowd, plays intimate, melancholy music. I love his raspy voice and the falsetto bits.

This piano based song is chillingly good.
Luke Rathborne-I Can Be One

I love this video. Luke’s voice is so lovely against the violin and cello.

Check out Luke Rathborne on his Website (where you can buy the music), Myspace and Facebook.
