I left these out at room temperature on a wire rack until completely cool and then cut them, without a problem. I agree with the other reviews that if you refrigerate them first, and then try to cut them, it would be very difficult to do it without a lot of muscle. The only problem I had was that I thought the crust part was a little dry. The taste is delicious, so I will make them again, but will probably add about 2 tablespoons of butter to the crust mixture.
I agree with first reviewer about the finished product being too hard to even cut. I had stored it in the refrigerator after baking, as the recipe said. Managed to cut it into small squares with a big knife and a lot of muscle! I then tore up the recipe and put the cookies in an airtight tin on the kitchen counter. The next day I tried them again and they were delicious and not too hard to bite. So, now I'm back to reprint the recipe so that I can make them again.
This is an easy recipe to follow and I followed it to the letter, including" covering, and refrigerate and then cut into squares". It was so HARD that I couldn't cut it, and my husband had to use his strong hand to try to cut them into squares. Even after we chipped off pieces I warned people that I was not responsible for any broken teeth. They tasted delicious, but too hard.
Amazing! So easy and yet it is like you made cashew brittle over shortbread - folks think you are a gourmet pastry chef with these. Cut them in triangles, they are a rich sophisticated dessert that can accompany a fancy cup of butter pecan ice cream with a sprig of mint. It's a $10 dessert!
My husband loved this! he loves a sweet pastry, but not crazy about nuts in general. However he does like cashews, so this was perfect! It's not a candy, not a brownie texture either. More like a cookie .
These amazing tailgating cookies, and bars are easy to bake and make the perfect game day treats. But make sure you bring enough to go around, or these delicious little treats may not make it through the first quarter.
