Chocolate Chips and Cashew Cookies

Cookies are the latest addition in my son's menu, specially the choco-chips chocolate cookies. While going through my microwave cookbook, I found a recipe for chocochip cookies. I altered the recipe a little and added some cashew nuts to prepare these mouth watering Cashew and Choco Chips Cookies....

Easy to prepare; takes about 30 mins and yields about 2 dozen cookies..

Ingredients :

  • 1-½ cups maida
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2-3 tbsp milk
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup cashew nuts, chopped
  • 2/3 cups chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the microwave oven at 180˚C at convection mode.
  2. Sieve flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder in a bowl. Keep aside.
  3. Beat the egg with vanilla extract. Keep aside.
  4. Take a bowl and beat butter and sugar till light and creamy. Mix in the beaten egg mixture till fluffy.
  5. Gradually mix in the flour mixture. Add milk, chocolate chips and chopped almonds. Mix well.
  6. Put a spoonful of the mixtute on the greased non-stick tawa a little apart (to give place for expansion).
  7. Flatten slightly using a wooden spatula (you can add some more choco chips & chopped almonds on the top).
  8. Bake at 180˚C for 20-25 mins on lower rack till golden brown. Cool completely and serve with hot tea / coffee.

The cookies are going to both the events hosted by Poornima of TASTY TREATS: For the Love of Chocolate and Lets go Nuts - Cashew Nuts.
