Who doesn’t love a chocolate chip cookie?  Really, I think there are few people in this world who would turn their nose up at such a classic cookie.  They’re easy to make, they’re perfect to eat with a glass of cold milk and to put it very simply, these studded beauties just taste so darn good.

So, you might be asking me right about now why I felt the need to tamper with my classic chocolate chip cookie recipe and add cashews?

To be quite honest, I’m not quite sure why I decided to add cashews.  Cashews are probably one of my favorite snacks and I love their buttery taste so I thought that maybe…just maybe…they might be a good addition.

And were they ever!!!  But, you aren’t really surprised, are you?

The salted cashews gave these sweet and satisfying cookies a perfect amount of saltiness.  The cashews balanced out the sweetness of the cookie and their buttery flavor only enhanced it’s richness.
