  1. Hello Melissa! These sound great! I haven't made any of these cookies with cashew butter as the base but I'm looking forward to it tonight. I have a quick question about making homemade cashew butter. Do you typically use RAW cashews for this? Thanks! :)
  2. I may try these when the holidays return...However, I know somebody who is allergic to the cacao powder and other forms of chocolate. Is white chocolate technically chocolate? If it isn't, I'm going to consider the white chocolate, for their sake. By the way, has anyone tried this recipe with white chocolate? Let me know if you liked it or not. Thanks, guys!
  3. I made these with raw cashews instead of the more expensive cashew butter. Had to use a little cashew milk to help the cashews grind up, but the final result worked great. This really puts a blendtec or Vitamix to the test. Neither is very good at making nut butters. But it can be done. BTW: Xylitol is also perfectly usable, but you need to dissolve it first in Cashew milk. Don't be afraid to experiment!
