Guest Post: Cashew Nut Cookies by Ana

It is with great pleasure to introduce you all to the lovely Ana, I haven't known her long but her blog is fantastic and so creative I am also in awe when bloggers do posts in three languages I am pitiful and just do English sob. Be sure to visit her blog Magic Flavors she is Portuguese and lives in my homeland :-)

About me:

I`m Ana and I was born in a place called Vila Real Santo António, Portugal.
I love experimenting with all sorts of food and for many years now I am completely in love with edible things, specially the ones that are delicious and beautiful. I`ve always had the passion for entertaining, so let`s gather the family and friends and enjoy good food.

 Cashew nut cookies

These cookies are excellent to serve with tea or coffee. To have a nice yellow coloured egg wash for brushing, you can add a few drops of yellow colouring into the beaten egg yolk.

150 g unsalted butter
100 g icing sugar, sifted
2 eggs
300 g plain flour, sifted
1 tsp baking powder, sifted with flour
100 g cashew nuts, toasted and ground
cashew nut to top 
egg yolk

1 Preheat oven at 180ºC.
2 Beat butter, icing sugar and eggs until light and creamy. Fold in flour, baking powder and ground cashew nuts and mix well to form a soft dough.
3 Lightly flour working surface and dough. Roll dough.
4 Use a cookie cutter and cut out the cookies. Place cookie dough on greased baking tray.
5 Press a cashew nut on top of each cookie for decoration. Brush cookies with egg glaze.
6 Bake in preheated oven for 5 to 7 minutes until golden brown. Cool on wire racks before storing in airtight container.
