Peanut Butter & Cashew Cookies

EIMG_9504-CR

I hadn’t made peanut butter cookies in a long time and had a craving for some of these hot-out-the-oven, over-sized treats. I thought I’d look up an old recipe from a cook book that worked well in the past.  When I reviewed the ingredients and saw things like lard and margarine, I thought, lets try a little substitution and bring this recipe up to date for the sake of creating a healthier snack.  But hey, it’s only healthy if you don’t eat them all to yourself in one sitting; they should be shared.

Serves 16
The perfect treat for peanut butter lovers in a nutty, chewy healthier over-sized cookie.
