Cashews are my partner’s favorite nut, so every year in my holiday cookie lineup, I make a treat that highlights that cute, crescent-shaped nut. The first time I stumbled upon this recipe for Cardamom Cashew Cookies, I was drawn to a combination of cashews and aromatic cardamom. The two make for such a lovely pair! Because I love citrus fruits so much and I thought it was fine to add a little of myself to this cookie I made for the love of my life, I decided to add the finely grated zest of two clementines. The result is absolutely divine! These Cardamom Cashew Cookies melt in the mouth, and the combination of flavors makes them just exotic enough to be intriguing but loved by everyone.
This recipe requires the use of salted cashews. If you use unsalted cashews, add 1 teaspoon (5 ml) kosher salt or fine sea salt to the recipe. Also, if you don’t have clementines on hand, you can, of course, use the grated zest of an orange, or even a lemon, instead.
