How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine brown sugar and 1/2 cup butter in 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.
