Caramel-Cashew Dark Chocolate Chippers Recipe

The flavor of these cookies is wonderful. My family likes to sandwich a scoop of vanilla ice cream between two cookies. It makes a special summertime treat.—Pam Ivbuls, Omaha, Nebraska
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 15 min./batch YIELD:36 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 cups salted cashews
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 can (13.4 ounces) dulce de leche
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 5 cups biscuit/baking mix
  • 2 packages (12 ounces each) dark chocolate chips
  • Additional sugar

Directions

  • 1. Place cashews and sugars in a food processor; cover and process until nuts are finely chopped.
  • 2. In a large bowl, beat butter and dulce de leche until blended. Beat in eggs, buttermilk and vanilla. Combine baking mix and cashew mixture; gradually add to butter mixture and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips (dough will be sticky).
  • 3. Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls 4 in. apart onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Coat bottom of a glass with cooking spray, then dip in additional sugar. Flatten cookies with prepared glass to 2-1/2-in. circles, redipping in sugar as needed.
