Cashew lovers will devour these cookies made with cashew butter. loaded with cashew halves and paired with jumbo chocolate chunks
Being a passenger in a speeding, weaving vehicle in a foreign country has it perks. You find out something new about your favorite nut.
Did you know the outer shells of the cashew contain toxins? Harvesters of the nut must use extra caution while cleaning them to avoid blistered skin. Also, locals use the cashew fruit for wine.
I gathered this knowledge while on vacation in Belize. & I must say – this was one of my all time favorite family trips.
Ice cream. Cave tubing. Johnny cakes. Snorkeling. Mayan Ruins. Red Fanta. What’s not to love?
Although, I probably already loved cashews, this trip only revitalized my love for this fascinating nut. Since I basically live off cashew butter these days, it was inevitable I make a cookie. These cookies have cashew butter in the dough and cashew halves throughout. Oh – & chocolate chunks, too 😉
Do you have a favorite trip or fun fact you’ve learned?
