Lea's Cashew Nut Cookies

Cashew-CookiesYears ago when my son was a toddler, I was fortunate to be a stay-at-home mom. My visits with other moms as our children enjoyed a play date were special occasions for the children as well as a time of building friendships of my own. It was also early marriage for most of us and we constantly shared recipes with one another making our little recipe boxes grow to bursting. These were the recipes our children would remember as a part of their every day life growing up. Cashew Nut Cookies is one of those recipes I traded for during those years and it became a Christmas tradition at our home. It’s a slightly sweet cookie with an icing that adds just a little more sweetness. Its lack of intense sweetness is probably the primary reason we have enjoyed it for years during the holidays.
