Chocolate Chip Cashew Cookies: Gluten Free

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cashew Cookies | The Happy Housewife

I love recipes that have only a few ingredients because it means I almost always have all the ingredients I need in my house.

Last week I received several jars of Jif® Almond & Cashew Butter. While these butters are delicious on crackers, fruit (think sliced apples with almond butter – yum!), and toast, I thought it would be fun to take one of our favorite cookie recipes and modify it to use with cashew butter, since my family loves cashews. 

The result is a six ingredient cookie that can be made in about 20 minutes. Oh and it’s also gluten-free, so it’s a great dessert to take to your next party that everyone can enjoy.
