I don’t put cashews in cookies nearly enough. So when I saw a recipe for Salted Toffee Cashew Cookies, I was on it immediately. Of course, as you read this you’re saying to yourself “That’s not what she titled this post, though.”

Yes, anyone who knows me understands how much I love to follow recipes and not make many changes so I can see what the recipe creator had in mind. But this particular recipe seemed to be crying out for some chocolate. And a little caramel. And I’m not a big fan of those brickle bits in general. And I had some salted caramel chocolate bars begging me to to have my way with them.

That’s a lot of ands which led to a very delicious end. Chewy, crunchy, nutty, chocolatety with the occasional ooze of salted caramel, these cookies are terrific. I especially love the cashew perched on top for presentation. Next time I will probably change out the butterscotch chips as all my cookie monsters here were not big fans of them.

Steps Of Doe, a duo out of So-Cal, have their debut album coming out next week. “On Returning” is full of folksy pop packed with lovely harmonies. ‘Walker’ is spot on hot. Its jangly guitar somehow gives it a dark ages flair.

Check out Steps Of Doe on their Website and Facebook. Keep tuned there for purchasing information.

Cheers!
