Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 1 minute
Total Time 6 minutes
- 1.5 cups unsalted cashews NOT roasted
- 1 cup confectioners sugar
- ½ cup milk powder instant non-fat dry milk
- 2-3 tablespoons water
Grind the cashews into a fine powder in ½ cup increments.
Mix the milk powder and confectioners sugar well and microwave them on HIGH power for 1 minute in 30-second increments i.e. microwave them for 30 seconds and whisk them well and microwave them again for another 30 seconds.
Add the powdered cashew to this mixture and mix it well. Start kneading them by adding 1 tablespoon of water at a time till it forms a dough.( Note: You do not need ghee, the cashews will let their oil out.Also, I used my stand in mixer to help me with the kneading. You don't really need to use it - kneading by hand should be fine)
Using a greased rolling pin, roll the dough to your designed thickness onto a wax paper
Cut the dough into desired shapes using a pizza cutter. They will be very soft to begin with and will start hardening in 10-15 minutes.
Store them in a refrigerator.
