    Cashew Biscuits - less sugar BUT more taste!

    This can be made without FP also, by mixing all ingredients together. FP makes the job easy!

    Cashews - 1 cup

    Maida - 2 cups

    Butter - 1 cup

    Sugar - 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp

    Baking powder - 1/2 tsp

    Just to crispen the nuts, bake them in a tray at 140 deg C for 10 mts.

    Cool & powder with 2 tbsp sugar.

    Now mix all ingredients to a dough in the FP.

    Make 35-40 portions & make small discs.

    Place on a well greased baking tray. I made some designs on them with cookie cutter - optional.

    Bake in a preheated oven at 160 deg C for 20 mts.

    Cool & store airtight.
