How to make it

  • Heat oven to 350°F. Combine brown sugar and 1/2 cup
  • butter in large mixer bowl. Beat at medium speed,
  • scraping bowl often, until creamy (1 to 2 minutes).
  • Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed
  • (1 to 2 minutes). Reduce speed to low. Beat, adding
  • flour, baking powder and baking soda alternately with
  • sour cream, until well mixed (1 to 2 minutes). Stir in
  • cashews by hand.
  • Drop dough by level tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto
  • ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 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,
  • until butter foams and just starts to turn golden (4
  • to 6 minutes). (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.
  • Makes 3 1/2 dozen cookies
