Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.
These soft brown sugar drop cookies are studded with cashews and topped with elegant browned butter frosting.
Heat oven to 350°F. Combine brown sugar and 1/2 cup butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking powder and baking soda alternately with sour cream, beating at low speed until well mixed. Stir in cashews.
Drop dough by level tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely.
Melt 1/2 cup butter in heavy 1-quart saucepan over medium heat. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, 4-6 minutes or until butter foams and just starts to turn golden. (Watch closely.) Immediately remove from heat. Pour into medium bowl; cool 5 minutes.
Add powdered sugar, milk and vanilla; beat until smooth. Frost cooled cookies. Top with cashew half, if desired.

have had so many comments on this recipe. People asking where I got it and how hard it is to make. Thganks for it.
I made these last night. I wouldn't change a thing. They are delicious!
Love this recipe, everyone loves it!
These were delicious and soft! Easy to make, a treat everyone will definitely enjoy!
The frosting is essential for this cookie. Without it the cookies are bland. I give them 4 stars b/c of the frosting and they are different.
ONLY IF YOU LOVE CASHEWS IS THIS THE BEST COOKIE IN THE WORLD - THE FROSTING IS THE BEST I'VE TASTED AND THE CASHEW FLAVOR OF THE COOKIE IS AMAZING AND MOIST - IF YOU DON'T LIKE CASHEWS, THESE ARE NOT FOR YOU - CASHEW LOVERS - ENJOY!
We tried this recipe and my husband loved them he ate the whole batch!
What a flavorful cookie, one that packs a lot of punch per bite! From the cashews to the delicious frosting, you can't beat the taste. I can't wait for my family to try them over Christmas.
The cookies disappeared almost immediately. I have one son who doesn't like cashews but he wolfed these cookies down. He loved them. I intend to make more for Christmas too. One of the best cookies I've tried yet!
I bake often and these have become my most requested cookies of all time. The browned butter frosting is to die for! I chop the cashews a bit before adding them to the dough and use lite sour cream. Real vanilla extract is another must and I recommend making them a bit smaller than stated because they are rich and the frosting is sweet. There cookies are addictingly delicious.

It was a beautiful day and Dad offered to take over dinner. He found a manly recipe for Mustard & Bourbon Glazed Pork Chops and made a plan.
Freshly sliced from the deli, Land O Lakes® 4 Cheese Italian Blend combines the rich flavors of Asiago, Romano and Parmesan with creamy American to bring the authentic taste of Italy to your American fare.
After you make the hamburger patties and light the grill, what do you get out of the fridge?
Probably ketchup, mustard and relish. Maybe mayo, lettuce and tomatoes. Those are the classics, and I love them, too.
But, sometimes I like to look at the burger and bun as just a starting point for some fun, creative cooking. More ...
